Submission + - Twitter boots critic of NBC for tweeting exec's email address (networkworld.com)

netbuzz writes: "Is a corporate workplace email address “non-public” and “personal?” The question arises after Guy Adams, a Los Angeles-based correspondent for The Independent of London, had his Twitter account suspended today, allegedly for having violated a Twitter privacy policy when he tweeted the workplace email address of an NBC Sports executive. The Internet is abuzz with accusations – no make that assumptions – that Twitter muzzled Adams because Adams was tweeting up a storm of protest over NBC’s coverage of the Games. However, Twitter says it was because it prohibits the tweeting of “non-public, personal email addresses.” Whether Adams did that or not appears debatable."
