Anthony De Rosa, social media extraordinaire, is leaving Reuters. De Rosa has been tapped by Circa to be its new editor-in-chief. Circa is a startup that offers news summaries for smartphones. De Rosa was most recently Reuters’ social media editor. Circa then, is right in his wheelhouse.

In a post on Circa, De Rosa explained his decision:

There’s a huge opportunity to present news in a way that’s made for mobile. Nobody is thinking about this more than Circa and I’m thrilled to help move that mission forward. Matt [Galligan] and David [Cohn] have a proven record of success and I feel like we have a shared vision for transforming the traditional article format.

De Rosa will join Circa next month.
