Twitter Blocks Reporter After He Posts NBC Executive E-Mail

Twitter Inc. blocked Independent newspaper journalist Guy Adams from the social-networking service after he posted the e-mail address of an NBC Sports executive while complaining about Olympics coverage.

Adams, saying he was frustrated with NBC’s delayed coverage of Olympic events, had tweeted the corporate e-mail address of NBC Olympics President Gary Zenkel. A few dozen people reposted the address on their own feeds, he said on the website of the U.K.’s Independent. He later discovered that his account had been suspended, Adams said.
