But rest assured, Hayden says he did not just pull a Sean Spicer.
"Certainly not a password. Can you pocket tweet?" Hayden told Gizmodo over email, adding in a follow up, "But, as someone suggested, it does decode to 'be sure to drink your Ovaltine' :-)"
Spy dad jokes!
Another top theory has also been disproven — quite scientifically — by the same security researcher who was quick to screenshot the retired four-star general's inadvertent tweet.
So was it a pocket tweet or six-legged cat? Tell us in the comments below.
