Still use a hyphen in the word email? Mashable does not, as you can see — and as of Monday, neither does the New York Times

“By popular demand, we’re going to remove the hyphen from e-mail,” declared the Grey Lady’s editor of “news presentation,” Patrick LaForge, in a post on the newsroom’s internal blog. He later confirmed the news in a tweet, along with some other tech word style changes:

A few NYT stylebook revisions coming on Monday: email (no hyphen), website and web, a tweet entry (it was never banned).
