Huh? I am really missing something.

Where does it start?

I am a scientist/mathematician and not a Tweeter..................

You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

I forgot tweets are often full of such bad words so couldn't finish it even if I could understand the punctuation.

Note to self: don't look at tweets!

Thanks anyway!

That reminds me of a short article S.P.Q. Rahtz ( yes, that is his real name) published in the journal 'Antiquity' many years ago.  It was about figuring out what archaeological reports really say.  Here are some examples.

'Evidence of a Roman bath was discovered' means 'We found a piece of broken tile'.

'Evidence of medieval habitation was lacking' means 'We were a bit too energetic with the back-hoe'.

'the object disintegrated on contact with the air' means 'Jim sat on it'.

'Further research may indicate...' means 'Mine certainly doesn't.

My favorite so far:

Samples from subjects' 4 & 5 were discarded because a bunch of stuff was piled on top of them & were therefore smushed. #overlyhonestmethods

Oh, you want an actual method you can follow? Pffft. Check the cover son, you're reading Nature.

Lol!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."
