The suspense has subsided. After keeping students, faculty, staff and all 8,000-plus of his Twitter followers guessing for five months, President Timothy Caboni has revealed his puzzle-pieced message. 

{{tncms-inline account=”Tim Caboni” html=”<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">For those of you not following along — here are all of my <a href="">#cryptictweets</a> since May combined:ON 8/II IIIIIII36.98784403432138 -86.454071402549761-3</p>— Tim Caboni (@caboni) <a href="">August 27, 2018</a></blockquote>” id=”″ type=”twitter”}}

Caboni originally tweeted the letter “O”  on May 21 and followed it with an “N” before tweeting two long series of numbers and more numbers after that. 

Once it’s all put together and translated to make sense, the cryptic tweets reveal three pieces of information. The first is the date, Aug. 27. Next are the coordinates for the president’s office on campus, and lastly is a time frame: 1-3 p.m. 

So what does all of that mean? Apparently, it’s free ice cream from Chaney’s Dairy Barn.
