How to use: who/that

I have seen many writers using "that" as a pronoun in cases where "who" should be used. For example, a book author says

I apologize to those of you that are unable to obtain electronic copies.

Should it not be

I apologize to those of you who are unable to obtain electronic copies.

Or is it wrong to use the latter, in the modern context?

Well, why "should" who be used if English speakers often choose that? What's the reason behind your premise in the first place?
