Yes, We Read the Comments

Wirecutter / New York Times

Here at Wirecutter, we believe in reading the comments (and tweets and emails and Facebook messages). We have a small Community team dedicated to listening to and advocating on behalf of readers who take the time to reach out and talk to us. Our reviewers also consider it part of their job to pay attention to the conversations you have about their work and the experiences you’ve had with products they recommend.
