Townhall.com columnist and Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich wished good luck to reporter Robert Costa on his move to the Washington Post:
Fired up, ready to go: tomorrow is my first day at The Washington Post
— Robert Costa (@costareports) January 5, 2014
Several people seemed to interpret Pavlich’s congratulatory tweet to Costa as if Pavlich was the person moving to the WaPo:
@KatiePavlich Best of luck to you even though you'll be great!

@KatiePavlich You are going to work for the post? If so, good luck. What about Townhall?

Clarification was suggested:
@KatiePavlich I think some people need clarification

And Pavlich delivered:
Guys, to clarify, I am not moving to the Washington Post, I was wishing @costareports good luck because HIS first day is tomorrow.
