Tweets need editors, too

Lately, I seem to be finding typos and mangled headlines everywhere I look. Today, @GuardianUS tweeted “Mutilated body washes up on Rio beach to be used for Olympics beach volleyball.” Yikes! Beach volleyball players are disgusting! But when you click on the link, the article title reads “Mutilated body washes up on Rio Olympics volleyball beach.” Whew, that’s better. Now, get yourself a copy editor.
