Not only is Twitter a place where you can share the mundanities of everyday life, get things, big and small, trending, and for many, a space where individuals gather their news, but it’s also a social media platform where possible love connections can be made.

Mindy Kaling Cory Booker

While you were at work yesterday, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, 47, tried to shoot his shot with writer and comedian Mindy Kaling, 37. It all started when Booker caught wind of a joke made on her Hulu series, The Mindy Project, about the city of Newark, where Booker previously served as mayor.

He probably wasn’t expecting a response, but Kaling gave him one. She made sure to differentiate between herself and her popular TV character.

Giddy at the fact that she responded and said that the love he has for her and her work is mutual, Booker decided to ask her out for dinner, which no one saw coming.

Twitter is definitely not the place to play coy when asked out on a date, especially not with all eyes on you. Kaling responded by accepting his invitation.

Even the New Jersey Path tried to get in on this back and forth:

Now, we’re not 100 percent sure if and when this date will actually take place, but fans of Kaling seem absolutely here for a love connection between her and Booker.

In the past, Kaling has dated her former The Office co-star B.J. Novak, as well as writer Benjamin Nugent. As for Booker, he’s reportedly dated Gayle King and poet/stylist Cleo Wade.

They’re both single, and he seems ready to mingle, so why not?
