Rep. Anthony Weiner has mastered the art of Twitpics, hashtags and, most recently, tweeting about himself in the third person.
The New York Democrat, known in Washington for colorful rants on the House floor, tweeted a link to a BuzzFeed article Monday morning that rounds up the Congressman’s top 15 hashtags of all time.
According to BuzzFeed, Weiner’s hashtag hall of fame includes chestnuts such as #jewfropictureincluded, #wrinkledupoldfool and #feelbetternowjackass.
Weiner tells HOH that he’s comfortable in the language of tweets. “Tweeting is like joke-telling,” he says. “You’ve got the shot and the chaser kind of thing — it’s just like giving someone a hard time at the bar.”
While the rest of the Twittersphere might have considered Weiner a wordsmith for some time, it’s nice to know that now he does, too. #Hashtagsgettingtohishead.
