Matthew Doyle tells the Telegraph that Twitter's 140 character limit made the encounter sound vastly different to how he thought it went

A man who tweeted about stopping a Muslim woman in the street yesterday, challenging her to "explain Brussels", and lambasted on Twitter for his comments, has responded to the criticism today, insisting he is not some 'far right merchant'.

Matthew Doyle, partner at a south London-based talent & PR agency, posted a tweet on Wednesday morning saying: "I confronted a Muslim woman in Croydon yesterday. I asked her to explain Brussels. She said 'nothing to do with me'. A mealy mouthed reply."

He was later arrested.

His tweet referred to yesterday's bomb attacks on the Belgian capital's main airport and Metro system that left at least 34 people dead and 198 injured. His comment went viral, being retweeted hundreds of times before he eventually deleted it.
