Vivian Schiller to be Twitter’s Head of News

The screenshot on the right is why we love media reporting. All Things D posted on All Things D that All Things D is reporting that Vivian Schiller, NBC News’ senior VP and chief digital officer, will be Twitter’s head of news.

Schiller has the chops to fill the role, which will require her to bridge the gap between Twitter and the media. Prior to her time at NBC, she served as NPR’s president and CEO for two slightly controversial years. Before that Schiller was a senior VP at The New York Times.

But never mind all that. Did anyone miss All Things D’s involvement in this story? We hope not. Because that is important.

No one does a better job of making themselves part of the news than media reporters. Today we saw some strong work by All Things D.
