What set this particular incident apart from others is that Twitter as a company decided to lend its corporate weight to Williams' critics by creating a "Twitter moment," meaning a tweet-based article about the controversy that it then presented to millions of users.The attention from Twitter headquarters and the backlash from readers likely played a role in prompting Newsweek's editors to completely remove Williams' article.Citing data from a 2015 study by the Pew Research Center, Williams noted that black women are significantly less likely to marry a person of another race than are black men.In the Pew survey, 24 percent of black male newlyweds were married to someone of another race, as compared with 12 percent of black women.Petersburg for a wedding," New York Times film critic Stephen Holden writes, "you wish their American screen counterparts were as comfortable in their skins and as relaxed about sex."

Journalists often receive complaints about their work on Twitter as readers complain about typos, differences of opinion and factual errors.In a short piece filed Tuesday, Newsweek staff reporter Janice Williams used the start of the ABC program's 13th season to remark on how the long-running show's casting of a black woman in the title role was a milestone for African-American women.Williams also argued that the casting of Rachel Lindsay was noteworthy because the "Bachelorette" star is among a relatively small group of black women who are dating outside their own race.Salon reached out to Newsweek's editor in chief for further comment but has not received a response.At some point following the retraction of Williams' article, Twitter actually removed the "moment" dedicated to criticizing her essay.
