Twitter can be confusing. All technology can be confusing actually. And even it's not confusing, there's inevitably going to be unintended mistakes. Everyone's done the "reply all" by accident at least once. You've texted someone else instead of the desired recipient, and for humor's sake, hopefully you've sent something wildly inappropriate.
Which brings us to Paul Hoynes. More than once since Hoynsie has joined Twitter, he's sent out messages publicly that were seemingly private. The inclination here, at least for me, was to be snarky, post the messages, make some jokes about his mustache and old men and technology and move on.
I thought differently today, so I asked Paul what was up with the cryptic public private tweets. Secret messages to Albert Belle? Communiques to agents?
Nope. Just text messages to his wife that he sent to Twitter by mistake.
You can all go back to your lives now. Paul loves his wife, that's the end of the story.
