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."
