Recent Twitter suspended the account of Guy Adams the journalist who posted the corporate email address for Gary Zenkel, the president of NBC Olympics, which was identified as a violation of Twitter’s rulebook, however Twitter has now made a u-turn on this decision and has apologized for the suspension:
“We want to apologize for the part of this story that we did mess up. The team working closely with NBC around our Olympics partnership did proactively identify a Tweet that was in violation of the Twitter Rules and encouraged them to file a support ticket with our Trust and Safety team to report the violation, as has now been reported publicly. Our Trust and Safety team did not know that part of the story and acted on the report as they would any other.”
Adams’ account has now been restored and Twitter is going to work to prevent this type of incident from happening again.
