Excited to announce I'm joining @WSJ as director of social media and engagement!— Liz Heron (@lheron) March 15, 2012
Looks like the Wall Street Journal just snatched up a new member for their social media team… right out of the New York Times’s office.
Several current WSJ editors and one former WSJ editor took to twitter to express their happiness with the new hire.
However, NYT’s employees were decidedly less happy about the situation.
Buzzfeed’s Ben Smith thinks it’s a smart move for the Wall Street Journal.
Poynter’s Steve Myers tweets out some insight on exactly why the WSJ hired “digital alchemist” Heron.
She turns tweets into gold, eh? We’re surprised Ron Paul 2012 didn’t snatch her up first…
