Revert and Reply

Revert and Reply :

The most common meaning of “revert” is “to return to an earlier condition, time, or subject.”

When Dr. Jekyll drank the potion he reverted to the brutish behavior of Mr. Hyde.

But some pretentious people have begun to use it mistakenly instead of “reply,” writing when they want you to get back to them about something, “revert to me at this address.”

This would literally mean they are asking you to become them.
