Three errors in three consecutive sentences

The error in the first sentence: women should be woman. The error in the second sentence: there should be an S after the apostrophe. The error in the third sentence: in my world, "criticism online" includes Twitter, which is online. From "Branson tweets apology for naked kitesurfing invite" on CBC News online on June 1, 2012.

I've seen lots of uses of "women" where "woman" is correct. I don't know if it's a simple typo or someone is spelling phonetically because some people don't hear a difference between the singular and plural. But the error that really strikes me in the one of logic. And it happens often unfortunately.

Oops. I meant to type "is the one of logic." My bad.
