Lots of people follow @breakingnews on Twitter — the account and the breakingnews.com website and mobile apps have become indispensable resources for news junkies who need to stay up-to-the-minute on the biggest news of the moment. But few people know that Breaking News is actually owned by NBC, and operated as what general manager Cory Bergman calls an "internal startup."
