Journalist says Twitter suspends account for criticizing NBC's Olympics coverage

LONDON - A Los Angeles-based reporter for a British newspaper said his Twitter account was suspended after he criticized NBC's coverage of the Olympics.

Guy Adams said in a story posted on The Independent website Monday that he was upset with the network's decision to broadcast the opening ceremony on tape delay. He sent a tweet blaming NBC Olympics executive Gary Zenkel that included his corporate email address.

Adams said he checked his Twitter account Sunday and received a message that it was suspended. He then received an email Monday that attributed the move to his tweet that included Zenkel's email.

"We filed a complaint with Twitter because a user tweeted the personal information of one of our executives," NBC Sports said in a statement Monday night. "According to Twitter, this is a violation of their privacy policy. Twitter alone levies discipline."

Adams said he is trying to find out more about his suspension.

NBC and Twitter have partnered on a handful of projects for this Olympics. Messages were left with Twitter .
