What caused that Twitter user to pose that question? Oh, just this:
"Men and there underwear" was headline on the infographic on @Today just now.

Grammar is hard! The ‘Today’ show ran a segment on the oh-so-pressing issue of men and their hole-riddled underwear and upped the mockery factor by having a homophone problem.
Hoping someone got a screencap of that @TODAYshow segment with a picture of a pair of briefs and the caption "MEN AND THERE UNDERWEAR"

@TODAYshow: Had a short (sic) on men's underwear. While the spot aired, the TV screen read "Men And There Underwear." THERE???

Tuned into @TODAYshow to read "Men and THERE Underwear" 1. I don't care about holey undies. 2. PROOFREAD!! Isn't society dumbed down enough?

And an exit suggestion:
Hey Today Show – hire me to be an editor. I could fix headlines like "Men and There Underwear"! #OrangeRoom

A job created! That’s more than President Obama has done, so there’s that.
