NO. A lesson in miscommunication in way too many parts. Alyssa said “OFFLINE,” but you apparently took that to mean that “Although her email was offline,” you could publish it ONLINE. Based on her reaction, that is clearly not what she meant. She should have been clearer. You..1/

2/ ...should not have posted it online even if she hadn’t specified “offline” IMO because most people don’t construe “share with whoever you like” to mean “post it on Twitter for the whole effing world to see.”

3/ She was angry and called it “doxxing” bc she specified “off-line” & you took offense bc she wasn’t clear enough as to what she meant by “off-line.” Just take it down and don’t apologize. The email says where her kids go to school. This was a misunderstanding IMO.

4/ This matters because Georgia and voting rights and women’s rights are under direct assault, and we need to forge alliances as much as we can, not tear each other down based on miscommunications. Anoa and Alyssa are both powerful and important voices, and it’s good to...

5/ ... to discuss policy disagreements, but corrosive to let a miscommunication spin this far out of control. Thanks. @Alyssa_Milano @TheWayWithAnoa
