Breaking News: Just Not From CNN (Also, Why Being Able to Change Your Username On Twitter Is Really, Really Dumb)

This one’s gotta have legs. About an hour ago, Business Insider reported that the CNN Breaking News account, aka @cnnbrk, was not actually run by CNN at all.

The account was actually being updated by James Cox, who up until very recently was the only user that @cnnbrk was following (it’s since added five CNN affiliates to its roster).
