Yes she did.

Link to that Twitter-post

Screenshot of the quote, indicating it was posted "2:56PM 25 Nov 09"

In case the tweet is removed here's the Archive.org copy of it.

  • Interesting, I wonder why I didn't get any results using search on Twitter.

    Possibly because it's from 2009?

    @Oddthinking Well it felt a bit silly to post a screenshot of the twitter, when question used a screenshot as a claim... Picture need a date stamp then.

  • @Wertilq: good point, there is really no way of saying if the screenshot is third party or not. In HTML/JS it's possible to actually embed a tweet, but I don't think it's possible here.

  • @Wertliq: Yes, I agree. I felt a little silly adding it for that reason, but I felt it was important, because controversial tweets are often deleted. My compromise was (a) this screen-shot is better than the original because it includes the posting date, (b) in the edit log, I solemnly swear this is a true copy. I admit that is a borderline anecdote, but I hoped it would be sufficient to convince people if the original was deleted.
