Twitter says that Schiller will work with journalists on how to best use the platform and enter into partnership deals with other news organizations. She’ll also come up with ways that Twitter better serve journalists.

Schiller has only been at NBC News for a cup of coffee, she the network.  Before coming to the Peacock, Schiller was CEO and president of NPR.
