To endorse, or not to endorse, that is BowenBBC’s question

Readers will remember that a few days ago we noted that the BBC’s Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen had updated his Twitter profile to include the notification that “Retweets aren’t endorsements”, after BBC Watch had published an article about his retweet of a Tweet by Joseph Dana.

Well, now Bowen’s profile has been updated again, and the caveat removed. 

So does that mean that we are now to understand that retweets are endorsements?
