Buzzfeed brings in Ayesha Siddiqi

Dec 20, 2013

Buzzfeed made some waves on Twitter yesterday by announcing popular writer/Twitter personality Ayesha A. Siddiqi will soon join their ranks.

"[W]hy buzzfeed hired me: me. [W]hat I'm gonna do there: me," Siddiqi remarked on Twitter in the wake of the news, although she also remarked, "bout time for Goose Dynasty amiright? I'm so right. [T]his is why BuzzFeed hired me."

Now the only question remains: what will be her title?

"So thrilled to announce that @pushinghoops will be joining us to build an exciting new thing, name tbd," tweeted Buzzfeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith.

"[D]on’t name it TBD," warned Andrew Beaujon.

"[I] think we HAVE to name it TBD now," replied deputy editor-in-chief Shani O. Hilton.

We'll go with Ideas Editor for now. One thing is certain, however -- we look forward to her upcoming bylines at the Buzz!

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
