.@ConnectxDots they just sent an update: Kirwin-Blanding area.

— Amy (@amywhoisawesome) September 29, 2014

@emilywilson011 apparently it's south campus, by the library like the towers! so a heavily pretty heavily populated area!

Emetic of the day: Weiner seeks interns

Yes, it’s true: Anthony Weiner is looking for a few good interns to help with his bid to be New York City’s next mayor. Here’s what Weiner’s looking for, via the NY Post:

What other duties would be expected of a Weiner intern? Glad you asked! Twitter users were happy to help describe #AnthonyWeinerInternRequirements:

’70 is the new 50:’ Geraldo Rivera tweets topless selfie; World groans

Holy crap, indeed.

Late Saturday night, Fox News anchor Geraldo Rivera somehow got it into his brain that posting a half-naked, sideways selfie was a good idea. Twitter users everywhere gasped.

In horror.

And reached for the eye bleach.

Geraldo Rivera and Mr. Burns, separated at birth?

If Rivera was trying to distract people from his weekend’s earlier blunders, he succeeded.

Fox News colleague Greg Gutfeld chimed in on SeniorCitizenSelfieGate:

Make it stop. Make it stop.

#GeraldoSelfie has broken the Internets.

This may be the first time in Twitchy history that we wished Twitchy wasn’t forever.

Well, it could have been worse.
