NBC says Twitter notified it about the tweet. Apparently, Adams not only posted the executive's e-mail address, but he encouraged people to e-mail their complaints about Olympics coverage to NBC. Then, NBC filed a complaint against Adams.
An NBC spokesman said the company was only trying to protect its executive, not get Adams kicked off Twitter. He said after NBC realized the consequences of its complaint, the broadcaster retracted it. And the charges did nothing but help Adams' popularity. He had 3,500 more Twitter followers when his account was reinstated.
