I would argue that Purple is the front-running in terms of personalized/humanized news delivery at the moment. Of course, it’s written by a human (Rebecca Harris) and she actually responds if you text her back with a question or comment. But it’s highly engaging and qualitatively much better than the news briefs I get via CNN on Messenger or Luka’s newsbot.
