US Dept of Education misspells name of NAACP co-founder in tweet — and the apology had a mistake!

From The Washington Post:

"At 8:45 on Sunday morning, the department’s official Twitter account misspelled the name of W.E.B. Du Bois, a black sociologist, historian, civil rights activist and co-founder of the NAACP, the oldest civil rights organization in the United States. Du Bois was misspelled as DeBois — an error that might be understandable from a young student, but the U.S. Education Department?"

 

Then, after a few hours passed since the original post, and Twitter went to town on the US Dept of Education, it was corrected, with an apology...that ALSO had a typo (which was subsequently deleted):

Post updated – our deepest apologizes for the earlier typo. — US Dept of Education (@usedgov) February 12, 2017

 
 

They eventually fixed the Tweet and the typo of the apology tweet with 2 new posts
