Skip to comments.Critic of NBC has Twitter account suspended after network complains
Posted on 07/30/2012 2:53:52 PM PDT by kcvl
Guy Adams works as a writer for The Independent, a national newspaper in Great Britain. He lives in Los Angeles. Throughout the Olympics, he's taken to Twitter and ripped NBC repeatedly for its coverage of the Games in America.
Namely, he's criticized the network's reliance on using tape delays, a frustration shared by millions of viewers.
Only in a marriage of old media and social media, Guy Adams no longer has a Twitter account. It was suspended Tuesday, and both NBC and Twitter ought to be humiliated by their thin-skinned, heavy-handed, and essentially pointless behavior.

The Ministry of Propaganda DOES NOT take criticism well.
like it or not.
I don’t get it... how can this guy get his account suspended for honest criticism, when Rosie O’donnell can write nasty, anti-Christian profanity about a different business (Chick-Fil-A) and retain her privileges?
What are the rules for what one can and cannot post on this social media outlet? ARE there rules?
No they don’t take criticism well but damn sure love to criticise everyone else!
Adams encouraged Lauer “to shut up” and called out Gary Zenkel, the president of NBC Olympics, as the “moronic exec behind the time delay.” And he said Zenkel should be fired.
Less sports, more Seacrest.
The answer should be obvious why Rosie get to keep her account. She is expressing the views they also agree with.
Regardless, Adams is right about his suspension being worrying.
It’s not that the suspension is all that bad. Twitter suspends accounts every day, but the fact that this suspension is more of a judgment call than an exact science is disturbing.
Twitter and NBC are partners, and friends tend to watch each others’ backs. So if you have been criticizing NBC and plan to continue doing so, it may be best to make sure you aren’t violating Twitter’s policies — you don’t want to find your account down the next time you try to log on.
This guy is kind of an idiot, how do you show these events without tape delay?
That’s the least of our worries...
two-edged-sword and in a universe where entropy rules, the bad edge is longer.
NBC = Nobody Better Complain
Twits said it was because he posted private information - email acct of NBC exec.
Shouldn’t Spike Lee be banned for life then?
The Twits at Twitter Twatted him down for his Tweets.
Agree with us or pay the consequences.
Glad I dont have, nor will ever have an account with the Twats at Twitter.
That's the way it used to be.
Now Jay Leno complains about NBC decisions, ratings almost nightly.
He posted the corporate email of NBC exec Gary Zenkel. With an email address like Gary.email@example.com, there should not have been any expectation that it was any secret.
I think they calle it LIVE.
I think they calle it LIVE.
big corporations rule.
I’m not sure you understand how this whole “TV” thingy works.
They do what the govt wants, and then the govt takes them over. That’s the Marxist way.
