The Verge speaks to @BreakingNews

Nilay Patel for the Verge:

But few people know that Breaking News is actually owned by NBC, and operated as what general manager Cory Bergman calls an “internal startup.” I spoke to Cory about how that works, how his team runs @breakingnews, and how the site managed to be both fast and accurate as the chaos of the Boston Marathon bombing story unfolded.

Nilay provides an awesome taster of what goes on behind the scenes of a tool which millions of people rely on each day. It’s well worth a read.
