Quickly deletes tweet after furious backlash.

“18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center,” the Times tweeted from its official account.


The tweet prompted an immediate backlash, with respondents furious the Times appeared to be absolving the terrorists of blame and pinning the responsibility on inanimate objects instead.
