To misunderstand the tone of another when communicating through electronic devices, i.e., text messages, emails, phone conversations, Facebook and other social media communications.
I’m sorry. I think you mistoned me; that is not what I meant. That’s one thing I don’t like about texting–it can lead to misunderstandings because it is difficult to “hear” the tone someone is speaking in. I really didn’t mean it to sound THAT way! I was just teasing!!!
