Wall Street Journal snags New York Times social media editor
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.
The news is bittersweet, as I'll miss my colleagues at @nytimes, for which I have the utmost respect. But thrilled for challenges ahead.

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.
@lheron Horrors! Really sorry to lose you at the Times. You represent our future! Thanks for all you've taught me.

She turns tweets into gold, eh? We’re surprised Ron Paul 2012 didn’t snatch her up first…
