Cory Booker, ‘The Situation’ spur Twitter frenzies

Newark, N.J. mayor Cory Booker has challenged a Twitter follower to try to live on food stamps and feed a family for a week, and pledges to do the same, while Michael Sorrentino, “The Situation” from MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” decided to celebrate “Pranksgiving” by tweeting what appeared to be his personal phone number to his nearly 1.5 million Twitter followers, but was actually the number of a friend.
