OK, we’ll give credit to Washington Post correspondent James Hohmann for deleting his tweet and issuing this as a follow-up.
One of my earlier tweets was interpreted in a way that was not intended so I deleted it.

Hmm … professional writers usually are pretty good about putting into words what they mean.
What was the tweet, James? https://t.co/QcWhb3l0Gl

Ah, people misinterpreted the tweet where he noted that Brett Kavanaugh said he was doing a lot of weight lifting and strength training the same summer Christine Blasey Ford claims he pinned her down on a bed. It’s a shame people got the wrong idea when he put those two things together in a tweet.
Sure, Jan. https://t.co/M7l2n2t00a

I'm sorry but presumption of innocence no longer applies. I'm afraid you don't get the benefit of the doubt. https://t.co/hmbTc9osy8

Then how did you intend it? I didn’t see any middle ground there myself.

How *was* it supposed to be interpreted there, champ?

Oh I think it was being interpreted exactly as you intended. pic.twitter.com/HMmwpWq0mC

How the hell was it supposed to be interpreted, other than the exceedingly obvious and ridiculous implication?
— LastOfTheBrohicans (@bmanbrotha) September 27, 2018
Can you tell us how it was supposed to be interpreted?

You’re a disgrace. Stand by your tweet. You meant exactly as it was interpreted.

You see sir, your problem is you lack a working brain. You think lifting = training to rape women.
It's actually about taking care of your body and bettering yourself. Many physical and mental benefits. I highly recommend a gym membership.

There was only one way of interpreting that tweet. Don't play innocent here.
— Athena (@SoCalViews) September 27, 2018
yeah, the reader was the problem
— Dr. Richard Harambe (@Richard_Harambe) September 27, 2018
Yeah, sure, not intended. Unbiased media.

It was interpreted exactly the way you meant it. Your biases are your own and that's fine, but don't ever try to claim impartiality in reporting. Credibility isn't free
