When we heard that Jill Abramson was going to be taking over at The New York Times, our speculation was that there will be a noticeable digital focus at the paper. We then needled Abramson a bit because for all her digital prowess, she still hadn’t signed up for Twitter.
But yesterday she signed up, and we’re glad she did. So far she’s only tweeted three times (once to rebuke Felix Salmon) but that’ll surely change soon. She’s also only following 71 accounts, and the fact that one of those isn’t us doesn’t make us sad at all.
