More tweets from today’s AP Stylebook chat:
* We use Internet, with a capital I, in all uses.
* Generic names of internal departments in corporations are lowercase: human resources, payroll, legal, marketing.
* Stock symbols should not be used in place of company names in stories.
* It’s iPhone and iPad except at the beginning of a sentence. Use IPad and IPhone when the word starts a sentence.
* One word for email is acceptable in all references. Use a hyphen with other e- terms: e-commerce, e-business, e-book.
* Do not use a comma before Inc. or Ltd., even if it is included in a company’s formal name.
