  1. Why the NYT’s Haberman has dropped Twitter… for now: Maggie Haberman of the NYT is one of the star reporters covering the Trump White House. She’s also become adept on Twitter, helping raise her profile. But she feels the platform has gotten toxic: “For me, it had become an enormous and pointless drain on my time and mental energy.” A very personal view of why someone would step away from a highly visible soapbox.

2. 12 prototypes: What worked in BBC’s quest for new storytelling forms: The BBC spent two months experimenting with 12 different storytelling prototypes. Here’s what worked, and didn’t. An interesting look at where storytelling might be headed.

3. Who loses when local news disappears: In the wake of the job slashings at the New York Daily News, Kyle Pope for CJR writes about what everyone loses when local news goes uncovered. Tough commentary.
