Forbes Tweet

Hard to say whether this is a typo or bad grammar but, either way, I was very excited (and admittedly surprised) to see the preposition leading and then suitably disappointed to find the additional preposition at the end.

Typo – NYTimes

I include, and enjoy, this one because it is not a traditional typo, in that it is more than a simple missing of a mistake. It is a missing of a mistake that requires some background knowledge, albeit some basic background knowledge. Whether ‘Twitter account’ should read ‘hashtag’, or whether the #whoareyouwearing should read @whoareyouwearing, the association of a Twitter account (rather than hashtag) with the hashtag #whoareyouwearing is incorrect.
