The article lacks research. Intimate and expire can be used to mean communicate/inform and "to die" respectively.

Touchwood, Backside ... 10 Phrases We Love to Use
by Kumbakonam Venkataraman (View MyPage) on Apr 20, 2017 12:02 PM

1.      It has been given in Merriam-Webster's Advanced Learners English Dictionary (2008) that the word 'intimate' has a verbal use.

Intimate (verb) – to say or suggest something in an indirect way. [He intimated (to us) that we should plan to arrive early.]

2. Again, the same dictionary gives the meaning of 'expire' as a verb: to die. It also gives the example: She expired after a long illness.
