eamcintyre replied to your post: hey i just sent an email to jesse thorn and it felt pretty good

Did you see he apologized? Right after this tweet he posted, “Apologies for last tweet.” Doesn’t totally exculpate him, of course, but you know, he did apologize without qualification.

i saw. i still don’t give a fuck. he apologized almost immediately but he didn’t bother deleting his shitty tweet. 

Lots of journalists (and journalists-ish, which is the category I’d put him in) don’t delete tweets as a rule. They post corrections. Idea is that you have to take responsibility for your mistake - you can’t pretend it didn’t happen. You just have to own up to it.
