AP updates social media guidelines: how to correct erroneous tweets and more

Associated Press :: Today the AP’s global news staff received an update of the social media guidelines (be careful, it's a download link for the PDF version of the guideline) that were last revised in November 2011. The main changes, revealed in a note to staff by AP Social Media Editor Eric Carvin and AP Deputy Managing Editor Tom Kent, are the addition of procedures for correcting erroneous tweets and a short section on deleting tweets. Also, in the examples in the section on retweeting, the placement of the designation “RT” has been moved to conform with more common Twitter usage.
