Warm weather hasn't come to Washington just yet, but spring fever hit the Hill yesterday just the same.

When approached online by his press secretary's boyfriend, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., agreed to sacrifice his official Twitter account to young love Thursday evening.

Social media experts say one of the main goals of using tools like Twitter is engagement - but perhaps not the way Brett Wanamaker interpreted it.

These two tweets from Wanamaker, whose Facebook lists him as being a member of the 2013 class at Johns Hopkins University's medical school in Baltimore, were his first ever. The reply from Adelson was a bit of a cliffhanger, but the story had a happy ending, documented for all to see on Warner's Twitter feed.
