Okay can someone please explain in simple terms what this means?
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT "2+2=5". As a former mathematician, I have things to say.

That was 10 minutes that would have been better spent without time rather than reading those tweets:
So maybe it means 10 = 0

In reality, it was more like 5 minutes:
So maybe 10 = 5 = 0

The problem is with the equals signs?

There is a duty of care to put enough things on the right of the equals sign so that the equals sign is not embarrassed?

You do not want to embarrass equals signs. When you do, they turn into single wiggly horizontal lines, or worse still, they have an additional diagonal line through them - I think that is when an equals sign is also disappointed and possibly a little depressed. It got up that day thinking that it could happily equals things: Then someone was careless - possibly with chickens: And the day is a right off.
