The tweet in question was sent out by Vox writer Matt Yglesias, linking to a piece on hookup app Tinder's recent decision to add in a Snapchat-like photo sharing feature. The headline: "Tinder's new feature makes it the ultimate sext machine."

Here's the tweet, now sans Weiner's favorite:

Naturally, the incident prompted a renewed round of media intrigue; it also gave us the brilliant New York Post headline, "Weiner pulls another Twitter boner."

Weiner addressed the hubbub with a few tweets of his own:
