“For student journalists who are writing for different publications and on different platforms, it really does have everything they need. I tell everyone it's like if Google docs, Otter, LinkedIn and Twitter had a baby, and that kid was really good at SEO and finding sources and content verification and newsroom management. (I only wish I had this tool when I was their age!)”
