WaPo announced today that they are moving Caitlin Dewey over to the Style section to write a digital culture blog. Dewey has been on the social media beat under Director for Digital Audiences Justin Bank since 2012. She is perhaps best known, of late, for her thoroughly entertaining post aggregating tweets from journalists in Sochi on their squalorous living accommodations. She also recently started an e-mail newsletter, “Links I Would Gchat You if We Were Friends,” which curates the best of Internet culture each day.
In her new position, Dewey will “immerse herself in all things native to the Web, using her expertise to illuminate and explain the culture of the Internet — who and what is creating buzz, how and why things gain traction.”
Congratulations Caitlin from FishbowlDC!
