TBnet Newsletter is changing name
Starting form this issue, the famous TBnet Newsletter that has been around for almost 2 years will change its name to the TBnet News.
This is because “Newsletter” is quite a boring name and Olena Rzhepishevska, the editor-in-chief of the TBnet Newsletter, decided to switch to something more funny - or at least shorter.
Bye-bye the TBnet Newsletter, welcome the TBnet News!
