“18 years have passed since planes took aim and destroyed the World Trade Center,” the original tweet said.
As noted, users of a social network drew attention to this message.
“The planes did not aim anywhere — the radical Islamists who captured them did it,” one of them wrote.
Another commentator said, “Wait, aren't the planes aiming at the buildings?” Who was it and why? ”
In the official NYT account, a message appeared that the previous tweet was deleted and edited "for clarity." Currently, it does not say anything about airplanes.
On September 11, 2001, two passenger planes hijacked by terrorists crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York, completely destroying them. A third plane crashed into the Pentagon building in Washington, another crashed and crashed near Pittsburgh.
According to official figures, 2,749 people died in New York, 189 in Washington, and 44 in Pennsylvania.
