TechRadar editor in chief Swider leaving for Substack newsletter
Matt Swider, the editor in chief of TechRadar, where he became known for tracking what retailers had PS5 and Xbox consoles in stock, is leaving his post to launch a Substack called “The Shortcut” where he will offer a variety reporting around tech products.
Swider plans to offer restock news about popular items like the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which his what more than 1 million followers on Twitter know him for.
He will also be writing recommendations and reviews about certain tech products — everything from drones to laptops — to help “later adopters” who prefer not to compare specs across different product websites.
Swider’s move is part of a trend of journalists moving to Substack to pursue greater ownership and control over their work.
He currently is writing a newsletter on Revue, but is moving everything over to Substack.
