“Web Site” Becomes “Website” According to AP Stylebook

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Yes, ladies and gentlemen…the Internet is getting smaller and news travels faster. Breaking news used to go out over press release news wires, then blogs briefly became the medium of choice, and now Twitter is the new method of important announcements.

Some of you may doubt it’s actual “importance”, but according to a tweet from @APStylebook “web site” has now become “website”. I’d like to personally congratulate them. I’ve been using “website” for years while ignoring spell checks that suggest otherwise.
