Twitter Rob Ford

Twitter explodes after new Rob Ford crack tape surfaces

Twitter and other social media platforms were set ablaze last night in the wake of news that there was not only another Rob Ford crack tape, but that the mayor was taking a leave of absence in an attempt to address his substance abuse issues (to say nothing of his damaged image). Reaction ranged from exasperation to glee as the city processed the latest entry in the troubled Ford saga, and that's to ignore the fact that within minutes, the story had gone international. So while Jimmy Kimmel (wisely) decided to keep it clean last night, there's plenty of ironic humour to be taken in below. Read it and weep, Toronto.
