By now well over 100 newspapers have opened Pinterest accounts, but I’m still waiting for the New York Times.
After a late night Twitter session with @FarWriter and @Myers_mel I got anxious and decided to go straight to the source. I sent a tweet to Lexi Mainland, the Times’ new social media editor, and received this reply:
@SocialScraps I’ll definitely let you know. We plan to be on there this spring.

So, while it isn’t a firm date, I’m hopeful we’ll see the NYT pinning soon. I’ll keep you posted as soon as I catch word of the new account.
The next question of course will be, what is the newspaper pinning? How would you like to see the New York Times use Pinterest?
