RTF, I'm still just sayin' that a Tweet should not be considered the same as an article, no matter what official policy may be, and I'll even say further.

No matter what the source a single line posted without any context should make one minimally wonder what the context was. Jumping to spread it immediately because you want to besmirch someone instead is at best lousy.

Re-tweeted round the world read by any who never heard or read the rest of the address at all.

And he did not tweet anything false so all was good!
