baynewser_5-11.gifThe mediabistro.com blog family just got a little bigger — BayNewser.com launched today, covering San Francisco and the rest of Bay Area media.

Co-editor E.B. Boyd interviewed James Cox, the creator of the CNN breaking news Twitter feed that raced to one million followers with Ashton Kutcher. (CNN acquired the account some time ago.)

“I ended up re-purposing the feed and taking the CNN email alerts, which at the time were the most, and still are, editorially driven, and putting them into a form I could consume as I traveled,” he said. “CNN’s feed also had the right level of noise.”
