Medium's Evan Hansen to Periscope

Medium's Evan Hansen to Periscope

Medium's head of content labs Evan Hansen departs today for a different social platform -- that is to say, Periscope. Hansen will lead the live-streaming platform as editor-in-chief starting May 16. 

"Farewell Medium, Hello Periscope," he tweets, sharing his news (appropriately enough) via a Medium post.

Currently @evanatmedium on Twitter, Hansen is actively seeking suggestions on a new handle.

"This just in in 'Awkward usernames'," jokes Uber's Chris Messina.

Hansen admits, "yeah, I started that years ago with evanatwired, I don't see evanatperiscope in the cards..."

If you want to weigh in on his next handle, by the way, there's a Twitter poll here that's begging for your vote!
