I am an appellate lawyer and persnickety dude. As a hobby, I correct typos in the Times, which no longer employs copy editors and consequently has tons of typos

I don't want to get anyone fired during a pandemic, but when one lawyer chilling in his apartment can make the biggest paper in the world delete 5 tweets a day because of dumb typos and grammatical errors, shouldn't that paper hire a less crappy social media team? https://t.co/deLEFKtKoc

@nytimes I'm not crazy about your solution to this tense problem and would try to write around it: the Biden and Trump administrations, each of which recognizes Juan Guaidó ... as the country’s legitimate leader. Present tense for the last administration doesn't work. @jakesNYT https://t.co/TmRhqLj8Qq

@nytimes "difficult concentrating" should probably be "difficulty concentrating," @PamBelluck. https://t.co/MT5mxCiOr9

@nytimes Ungrammatical subject-verb-splitting comma, @katierogers: A report published by CNN on Monday evening said that the dogs Champ and Major, had been moved after Major had what one person described as a “biting incident” with a member of the White House’s security staff. https://t.co/frOQZ18PEF

@nytimes I was thinking maybe you could choose between "victim's rights groups" and "victims' rights groups," @EricaLG, @katierogers. https://t.co/ESM5UFByxq

Oprah Winfrey’s explosive two-hour interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attracted 17.1 million viewers on CBS. The number of viewers climbed as the show went on and are only expected to grow, @koblin writes. https://t.co/j9Hkajf6Ov

@EricLiptonNYT @nytimes Because "as well as" is an adverb, not a conjunction, "lobbyists" should be "a lobbyist" below, @EricLiptonNYT: Mr. Gertler hired Mr. Dershowitz, who has served as a lawyer to Mr. Trump, as well as Louis Freeh, a former F.B.I. director, to work as lobbyists . . . . https://t.co/TjJisInqc8

@nytimesworld Verb-noun-agreement error, @sarahlyall: "were" should be "was." You've mixed up your subject (the singular "discussion") with the multiple prepositional objects of "discussion of." A common error (for the Times). https://t.co/K2UCwIydGF

@nytimes This sentence is missing "there" before "were," @Christina_M18: "She and other professors, though excited about the effort, were also critical of the list, because, they say, were few stories about Latinas and L.G.B.T.Q. people." https://t.co/TuYdFJBtgw

@nytopinion @nytimes @thechrisbuskirk "is" is a painful verb-noun-agreement error in your penultimate sentence for "are," @thechrisbuskirk ("congressional Republicans and most of the Washington ecosystem around them is lagging behind economic and political reality"). https://t.co/ABwOd0JC0l

@nytimes "were" is a verb-noun-agreement error for "was" in "Gone were the buffet of refreshments and snacks." The sentence on the right is ungrammatical for lack of "and" before "go-karting." The structure is Verb 1, Object 1 and (this "and" is missing) Object 2, and Verb 2. @suilee https://t.co/eaa6CBC7HM

@nytimes This comma should be to the left of both the single and double quotation marks, not between the former and latter. "heir" is a strange typo in "Marie Elena Rigo and her husband have supplemented their heir two children’s schooling . . . ." @ShawnHubler https://t.co/HVqGwIQK4k

@nytimes As I've tweeted about a hundred times, when you put a full sentence in parentheses, its period goes inside the parentheses, not outside; otherwise your sentence's main clause is a period, accompanied by a parenthetical comment. @charusurimusic https://t.co/MIgLQoHsqO

@nytimes You need "and" before "paying" here because "as well as" isn't a conjunction, unless you've intentionally chosen to go without a conjunction before the last item in your list that counts. @kujawinski https://t.co/Q5a772c8ZJ

@nytimes "drones strikes" should be "drone strikes." When using a noun adjectivally, as a rule of thumb use its singular form. @EricSchmittNYT @ckoettl https://t.co/AxXIS9sZct
