Meet Wall Street Journal’s Tweeting Chandelier [Video]

In the latest episode of “Cubes,” WSJ editor and “Lunch Break” host Wendy Bounds gave MediabistroTV a VIP tour of the Dow Jones office, starting with the sparkling chandelier in the reception area. But this is no ordinary light fixture.

“Every newsroom needs a chandelier, and we have one!” she said. ”The reason I love this chandelier… is because it tweets, as do many inanimate objects in the building.”

The chandelier’s internet BFF’s are fellow inanimate objects the Wall Street Journal snack bar (@wsjsnackbar) – ”bringing you the breaking news in snacks since the fruit got put away” – and The New York Times refrigerator (@nytfridge). Who says it’s not cool to tweet about your lunch?

Added Bounds, “If we ever decide to have a dinner party, we’d be set.” See the rest of the office in the video below.
