Judging by these tweets, not a great day at “the future of journalism”:
Today was my last day after three years at BuzzFeed. It’s been fun and I just hope that, from this day on, no one ever again asks me if I want a Solero.

Today is my last day as senior reporter at @BuzzFeedNews. I’ve enjoyed every moment of reporting on underrepresented voices, global news stories, and being at the scene of major events.
I’m going freelance!
Let’s have coffee, my DMs are open.
