In June of 2011, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner tweeted an inappropriate photo of himself meant for a 21-year-old college student named Gennette Cordova. The incident sparked a media firestorm known as “Weinergate.” Though he initially claimed he was the victim of a hacking, he later owned up to his misconduct and admitted to having an inappropriate online relationship with six women. "I take full responsibility for my actions," Weiner said according to ABC news. "The picture was of me, and I sent it. "I haven't told the truth," Weiner continued. "I have done things I deeply regret. I apologize to my wife (Huma Abedin) and our families. I'm deeply ashamed." On June 16, he announced his resignation from congress. REUTERS

On Wednesday "Newsroom" actress Alison Pill, "accidentally" tweeted a topless photo of herself via Twitter. Pill, who posted the intimate pic for her 14,000 followers to see, quickly deleted the photo and owned up to her gaffe.

"Yep. That picture happened. Ugh," the 26-year-old tweeted. "My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet... Apologies. " (Given that Pill's Twitter following shot up to over 21,000, we're wondering if she's really all that sorry...)

Accidental or not, Pill's tweet is one of many social media slip-ups. From high profile politicians to overexposed celebs, here are five major Twitter boo-boos that had everyone talking.
