We all know no one who actually wanted to mess with Ted Cruz would ONLY like said video.

I really have never cared for Ted Cruz myself.

Ted Cruz liking incest porn on 9/11 is probably proof we have moved from the attacks. My take away.

Even though Ted Cruz is my least favorite Senator of the 21st century, I don't really picture him as someone that really even uses Twitter (or any social media), personally or professionally. I think when he says it was a staffer, I'm inclined to think he's actually telling the truth this time, as much as I would like to see him scandaled out of office. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a staffer or intern that just couldn't stand Cruz anymore and did it purposely. Apparently, Cruz is extremely unlikable. As fellow Republican Lindsey Graham said of Cruz, "If you killed Ted Cruz in the Senate, and the trial was in the senate, no one would convict you."

My opinion of him hasn't changed, and wouldn't change even if he did like the Tweet (can't get much lower, honestly). 

For question #3, I think it is great for both personal and professional use, as long as you use it respectfully and professionally.

That's an interesting view of it. I hope it's true (as far as something like that can be moved on from).

I remember when Trump called him a "pussy" during the campaign.  Nobody disagreed with Trump, they were just outraged that he said it publicly.

I look forward to the day when "9/11" has the same emotional resonance as "Remember the Maine"

Personally, this incident makes me glad I chose long ago to never touch, or exist on (aka, make an account of any sort on) such things as Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr. I hear about these kind of stories (though many around actors or musicians, or lower profile anecdotes) all the time.

This was the funniest North Korean Tweet I've seen in regards to this. I'm not sure if it was really NK or if this is a parody account, though: "Corpulent US senator from Canada Ted Cruise is revealed as base and shameful pornography addict, endlessly spraying his seed over computers."

Cursing? I know Cruz is disliked by quite a few non-Christian Minority groups (both for things deserved and not), but I don't think the Romani have expressed that much displeasure with him. In fact, Romani-Americans are almost actively never politically vocal, that I've heard. :P
