The 2012 Twitchys: Top 10 mistweeters of the year

twitchys 2012 v2

To err is human. To mistweet is … Twitchy gold! Here’s our year-end review of the weirdest, cutest, and most unfortunate Twitter bloopers of the year:

10. Entrenched incumbent Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland sent a string of alphabet messages like these.

After gigglesnortage on Twitter ensued, she blamed it on her handbag. But before too long, she (or her handbag) was back at it again:

9. The Obamas’ Chicago consigliere, senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, had “p” on her brain. Click here for Twitter users’ helpful attempts to decode the message.

8. Whoops. Looks like this fake Cokie Roberts tweeter mistook the “Compose Tweet” field for a search engine. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

7. Tech mogul and sports fanatic Mark Cuban apparently took Twitter lessons from Lanny Davis. Was he trying to direct message Morgan Fairchild, too?

6. ABC’s Nightline tried to send its unfortunate Newtown-related typo down the memory hole and pretend it didn’t exist. Next time, practice transparency like you mean it.

5. Uh oh. Looks like our friends at Fox Nation fell victim to some butt tweetage.

Oops, they did it again. Or perhaps Sen. Mikulski’s handbag was the culprit!

4. New York City’s nanny state mayor Michael Bloomberg appears to have imbibed one too many spiked Big Gulps.

We hear Mayor Bloomberg is now considering banning pocket tweets.

3. They don’t call him Gov. Moonbeam for nothin’…

2. Obama’s Labor Secretary Hilda Solis shows us her pricey handbag and a refreshing bottle of water, and then deletes it. But as you know, Twitchy is forevah.

1. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has one of the most popular Twitter feeds on Capitol Hill, with good reason. Keep pounding!

      Oh you just made me laugh. Isn’t it weird how many twitter accounts got “hacked” this year? What are the odds!!??

      And even more improbable: the hackers magically stopped hacking, instantly!

      What are the odds!!??

      I noticed her last tweet search was for Homemade Applebees. She probably had her Chef whip up some baby back Riblets.

    I have this feeling if we could somehow decode Sen. Grassley’s tweets, we might be able to solve the fiscal crisis.

    Most coherent thing Bloomberg has said all year.
