SWAN of the Week, No. 123 –5 Digital + Pop Culture Journalists to Follow

Happy Friday!

I’m often asked how I track and stay on top of so many trends. My answer is typically some combination of: embrace curiosity; seek out culture; and pay attention all the time.

But that answer always seems like such a cop-out and not exactly helpful.

So this week as I was putting together the Social Pulse, I realized there are some sources I find extremely valuable in keeping a pulse on what’s happening.

Below are five journalists I highly recommend following – both at their publications and also their personal channels…

Taylor Lorenz

Taylor Lorenz is internet culture reporter at the New York Times, a role she just started in the last month after a breakout run at The Atlantic and Daily Beast. She also started and runs the GradeATikToks account on Instagram.
