NEW: NYT's @rpogrebin admits she likely wrote the first tweet that the Times deleted & apologized for.
She points to Times social team for failing to edit.
"The social media team decides whether to send them out, they usually edit them or change them."https://t.co/e5bW0Z2ZSJ

How crazy is this? And how do they have editors that let all this crazy through?
Here’s the offensive tweet that she wrote and they later deleted:
NYTimes followed up with a tweet noting the deletion, saying it was "poorly phrased" & included a screen capture of the original tweet.
Then they deleted that tweet, saying it was "offensive." pic.twitter.com/jjTVp6YHY8
