This May (Or May Not) Be The Greatest Mansplaining Shutdown Ever

"I wrote the article."

Posted on

A Twitter exchange has gone viral between journalist Casey Johnston and an online troll.

An image of the tweet exchange has almost gotten 2,000 retweets, whilst the original tweet has racked up well over 1,000 favourites.

However, Tomas Sancio is alleging to have made a typo when tweeting Johnston, and tweeted a lengthy defense.

@caseyjohnston Of course, the first thing I read when I "read the full article" was the name of the author. Cheers <img src="http://twemoji.maxcdn.com/36x36/1f603.png">

@gretared @caseyjohnston so I make sure that I read the article to see if she raised the point of role models. Since she didn&#x27;t, I replied

@gretared @caseyjohnston so yes, Grace Hopper was a great woman, but few people know about her. I believe a popular tech figure would help.
