there is this on Reddit back in June.

I received some info back yesterday from CBC on their selection criteria. they say: First and foremost, we are looking for people who add to the conversation in Hamilton. We think the accounts we have are part of that conversation because they provide information or commentary that go beyond either personal events or promotional information. Our other criteria are: At least 300 followers on Twitter. An established profile in the community (i.e. a business, an agency or organization, or an individual who is well-known for commentary or as a so-called citizen journalist). Tweets that conform to our standards for taste and content - no obscenity, ad hominem attacks, threats, or consistent inaccuracy etc. The most important factor, according to CBC, is they had to know about the Twitter account. My understanding of that would mean, anyone they follow on twitter. So why out of the several hundred people they follow, they selected this very small group to promote is still a mystery.
