Critic Of Olympics Telecast Says Twitter Blocked Him

Guy Adams, a reporter at the British daily The Independent, says his Twitter account was shut down after he urged followers to contact an NBC executive with their gripes about the delayed broadcast. He included the name of the network's Olympics president and his e-mail address. NBC filed a complaint with Twitter, arguing the tweet violated the service's privacy rules because it included personal information.
