After a two-day suspension of his Twitter account, Guy Adams tweeted Tuesday afternoon:
Twitter suspended the NBC Olympics critic, a journalist for the British newspaper The Independent, this weekend based on a complaint from NBC that Adams had tweeted the email address of a network executive. NBC vice president for communications Chris McCloskey said Twitter alerted the network
, its partner for the Olympic games, to Adams' tweets. Soon after the complaint, Adams was suspended.
Adams quotes an email from Twitter today that says, "We have just received an update from the complainant retracting their original request ... Therefore your account has been unsuspended."
An unnamed NBC spokesman gave The Wall Street Journal this explanation
today: "Our interest was in protecting our executive, not suspending the user from Twitter. We didn't initially understand the repercussions of our complaint, but now that we do, we have rescinded it."
