Twitter Reinstated Journalist's Account

Posted: Updated:

Twitter has reinstated the account of journalist Guy Adams. The social network had kicked Adams off Twitter, saying he breached its privacy policy when he posted the e-mail address of an NBC executive.

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.
