As the buzz begins about next week’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, everyone’s talking about President Obama at Facebook, Charlie Sheen’s visit to D.C., and the unfortunate Georgetown flooding. Here are some of this week’s top tweets.

President Obama’s week started at the White House for his third annual Passover Seder…
@edhenrycnn: WH reveals the President and First Lady will host a Seder at the White House for Passover; something they have done in previous years
…and continued as he traveled to California to visit Facebook’s Headquarters for a town hall meeting.
@chrislhayes: For the love of God, Zuckerberg: buy some f*cking loafers.
@Chris_Moody: Mark Zuckerberg when Obama says he wants to raise his taxes: “I’m cool with that.” Obama: “I know you are.”
@pourmecoffee: Zuckerberg to Obama: If I wrote you out a check right now to clear up the debt, would you take out the Winklevoss twins?
Off our radar temporarily, Charlie Sheen reappeared (although very late & escorted by a questionable police motorcade) this week to “perform” in D.C decked out in Washington Nationals Gear and ready to make a scene.
@dance_DC: Why am I listed under ‘Charlie Sheen Hits DC?’ Is there a way to remove yourself from a Twitter list?
News (and photos) spread quickly of the terrible flooding on the Georgetown waterfront earlier this week, leaving many of the area restaurants out of commission.
@FarmersandFishers: Due to the flooding, we’re closed for the time being. Everyone is fine, and we’re working hard to get the water out so we can re-open soon.
And finally, on the note of the upcoming White House Correspondents’ Dinner…
@delrayser: I hope everyone sitting at the Washington Post’s WHCD table has their birth certificates handy.
We’ll have more WHCD buzz for you next week — stay tuned!
