Twitter bans NBC critic

Deadspin: NBC’s No. 1 Tweeting Critic Has Been Suspended From Twitter.

According to the piece, it was a tweet in which he revealed the email address of an NBC exec that got his account suspended. “The man responsible for NBC pretending the Olympics haven’t started yet is Gary Zenkel.” He included Zenkel’s email address.

One would hope Twitter would bend over backwards to accomodate critics, esp since they are partnering with NBC on the Olympics coverage. And esp since NBC is using Twitter and realtime media incredibly poorly. It should be a serious embarassment to Twitter, assuming they understand how awful NBC’s coverage has been. Shouldn’t they have advised NBC not to delay the broadcast of the opening ceremonies according to timezone?

It gets more interesting all the time!
