1000TimesYes Founder Joins Spin.com

Posted October 11

In an act of intra-categorical incest, @1000TimesYes founder Christopher R. Weingarten has joined Spin.com as its new senior editor.

For those not familiar with the man behind the Twitter handle, Weingarten is the author of such books as Hipster Puppies and Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. He’s also contributed to Spin, the Village Voice and Rolling Stone, and is the former editor of the website Paper Thin Walls.

Weingarten’s entry into the Spin fold is sure to baffle the reeling of minds of some of our Beyond the Blog voters, as both the Twittering music critic and the publication are nominated for this prestigious award.

And so begins a battle of Civil War-like proportions…
