Former congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner recently favorited a tweet on Tinder being the new "ultimate sext" app. Weiner notoriously fell from grace twice over a sexting scandal.

Here's the tweet by Vox reporter Matt Yglesias:

Weiner, who previously had 27 Twitter favorites, now has only one: a tweet by Twitter user @Mobute.

Reached for comment, Weiner said the favorites were accidental:

Shortly after the publication of this article, he tweeted this:
