You may not know this, but Ed Balls Day is actually an international holiday. At least according to the UK member of parliament's many Twitter fans. As legend has it, on April 28, 2011, Balls accidentally tweeted his own (hilarious) name when trying to search for an article about himself. Before long, the tweet sparked a unstoppable, Balls-tastic meme that included parodies, fake twitter accounts, movie posters, comic strips, and more. The rest is history.

Anthony Weiner Gets Hacked

They were the Tweets seen 'round the world. Perhaps the most famous occasion of political Tweeting gone wrong, the Senator's Weiner-photos made headlines in May 2011 when they were made public on his Twitter account. Weiner claimed he had been hacked, but later admitted that he'd been exchanging explicit photos (like the crotch shots he accidentally Tweeted) with six women. The sexting scandal eventually led to his resignation.
