So far, only the FT seems to carry it properly:

(Paywalled link, sorry). Headline: "Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales 
launches Twitter and Facebook rival"

Excerpt:

---
Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has quietly launched a rival to 
Facebook and Twitter that he hopes will combat “clickbait” and 
misleading headlines. 

WT:Social, his new social-networking site, allows users to share links 
to articles and discuss them in a Facebook-style news feed. Topics range 
from politics and technology to heavy metal and beekeeping.

Exactly what we need. Also, looks like the ethos is pretty well defined: 
"WT:Social is also operating a wait-list for new users, which donors can 
pay to skip."

Cheers,
