In late November MSNBC announced that they are syndicating content from the BreakingNews Twitter account. The BreakingNews account has about 1.4 million followers on Twitter and MSNBC has decided to buy the domain name BreakingNews.com to complement the real-time news source.
MSNBC bought the domain name from PV Media Group. ?Hard and fast breaking news is currently an underserved market. With www.breakingnews.com we can now provide the optimal solution,? stated Charles Tillinghast, the President of the MSNBC Digital Network.
