Meanwhile, the @FakeAPStylebook account on Twitter, which satirizes the Stylebook, has grown to 129,000 followers in about seven months. Some of those followers are journalists who refer to the Stylebook on deadline every day and pride themselves on knowing the difference between Champagne and plain old sparking wine.
Today’s release of the 2010 edition of the Stylebook, which has a new social media section with terms and guidelines, seemed the perfect opportunity to bring these two obsessions together.
So we asked the people behind @FakeAPStylebook to apply their wit to some social media terms, pulled some terms from this part of the new Stylebook, and present you with this quiz.
Can you tell what’s Scripture and what’s heresy?
