AP is reviewing its procedures after third revised tweet in a week

What’s going on with the AP Twitter account lately? After this masterpiece Wednesday:

The AP revised.

On Tuesday it revised a tweet about Gaza. And last Wednesday it revised a clumsily worded tweet that many people misread. “The Elmo cite, included in an @AP tweet because of our ’10 Things to Know for Today’ item about Times Square impersonators, was part of a regrettable juxtaposition,” AP spokesperson Paul Colford told Poynter. “We are reviewing our procedures.”

We have made it easy to comment on posts, however we require civility and encourage full names to that end (first initial, last name is OK). Please read our guidelines here before commenting.

    Am I the only person who sees tweeting as an ethical quagmire?

    It’s really not the Associated Press’ fault that people can’t read properly.
