Reaction to the cover:
– ‏Newsweek’s last print issue has just a hashtag on the cover. Like using your final breath to ID the killer. @sacca
– Newsweek’s last cover: one more flippant stunt. Ooh! A Hashtag! I’m proud to have worked there 1985-93. @jswatz
– Glad to see @Newsweek going all digital! Love the cover of the #LastPrintIssue. ‏@tayt99
– This is not a cool or self aware cover, this is lazy design. gawker.com
– The ironic cover of @Newsweek last print issue (digital didn’t kill the magazine its failed reinvention strategies did). @rajunarisetti
– We read Newsweek in Social Studies, took riflery in camp, and had to ask to use the kitchen phone after untangling the cord. Times change. @jonathanwald
– Loving the final Newsweek cover – clever and poignant. @laceyvrose
– This almost perfectly captures Newsweek’s editorial problem. @michaelrstrain
– Bitter sweet! Wish us luck! @TheTinaBeast
