New York Times corrects: Writer's name is not 'Chillian J. Yikes'

A world-beating correction from The New York Times:

An earlier version of a tweet in this column misstated the name of its writer. As her Twitter handle correctly noted, she is Jillian C. York, not Chillian J. Yikes! (That is a pseudonym she created for Halloween).

In an email, Craig Silverman points out that the correction ran on a piece about Suzanne Somers' star-crossed Wall Street Journal blog post, which itself earned a buzzy correction.
