Here is my best explanation:

'revelation' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'tweet set back husband and then some' is the wordplay.
'tweet' becomes 'pipe' (both can mean to make a high-pitched sound).
'set back' is a reversal indicator.
'husband' becomes 'h'.
'and then' says to put letters next to each other (I've seen this in other clues).
'some' becomes 'any' (similar in meaning).
'pipe' back-to-front is 'epip'.
'epip'+'h'+'any'='EPIPHANY'

'in' acts as a link.
