Ted Cruz Finds Out the, Um, Hard Way That Trending on Twitter Isn’t Always Good
Ted Cruz, failed presidential candidate and hobgoblin, had quite the Monday night! The Twitter night shift was doing what it does, when someone stumbled across something Ted “liked” from his official account. Now, even the shit he normally likes is gross, but this one was quite special. Seems ol’ Ted Cruz “accidentally” liked a tweet from an account called @SexuallPosts. The post contained a very NSFW video of some very NSFW sexual activities.
Well, as you can imagine, Twitter lost it’s goddamn mind. And it was glorious.
Justice, she was swift. And she showed no mercy.
This tweet on Ted Cruz & his porn addiction aged like a fine wine made for Dems. https://t.co/fLtP9fAKYH

The tweet he’s quoting came from Ted’s old college roommate, Craig Mazin. He famously roasted Ted during the primaries, with gems like this one.
I believe that’s what’s referred to as an evergreen tweet, yes?
Once word spread that Ted Cruz was busy liking sex posts from his official account, Twitter went ALL THE WAY IN. I swear, I know that platform can be a pain in the ass, but there is nothing better than Twitter when shit like this goes down.

Nobody who works for or knows Ted Cruz cares enough to take down the porno tweet like, or to even inform him of it. Outstanding

The like was up for nearly an hour. That is terribly sad and absolutely hilarious. No one likes you, Ted Cruz!
One media outlet actually reported Ted Cruz's "like" of a porn site was "quickly yanked off." Tea Pain can't unread that.

Sadly, the fun had to come to an end. Someone finally figured out that it was weird for that gremlin to be trending on 9/11 and removed the offending like. Of course, per the “oh shit I fucked up on social media” handbook, the like was blamed on hackers. Or ghost Twitter, it’s pretty unclear.
The offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter

Not sure how a like can be posted to someone else’s account, but okey dokey, Catherine! It was fun while it lasted, and we’ll always have this exchange to remember the event.
Always thank your fans! Never change, Twitter.
