But soon came. An apology or at least an explanation from Twitter was what was requested since they knew the circumstances of the suspension of the account of the correspondent of The Independent, Guy Adams , as that clearly looked like a crude attempt to censor of what was hashtagueado as # NBCfail.
The reporter, after a series of tweets and an article highly critical of NBC's coverage of the Olympic Games, saw his account suspended under the Twitter notification that he was violating the privacy of user data.
The user in question was Gary Zenkel, president of NBC Olympics and the head of NBC's coverage, which email firm Adams published in a tweet and Twitter right there was reason to justify the suspension of the account. But things began to get murkier when we put in context other data:
A few hours ago Twitter account run again and he began to tweet the answer right there he had sent in an email Twitter: a line where you said that the account was reinstated because those who had complained they withdrew their application.
The explanation and apology would come later, when Adams was already counting his case on CNN.
Alex Macgillivray (@ AMAC), general counsel for Twitter, launched a tweet with a link to an article in the official blog where they explain their position on the private information of its users and its procedures in such cases.
The article explains that when the complaint to an account, they suspend it to find out what happened. With regard to the company say that email users can use their email in different ways, and they can not know the input, so apply this approach to all accounts. They also confirm that part of the team working with NBC at the Olympics detected a tweet that was not fulfilling the terms of service and encouraged the NBC to open a ticket to report the user. Most importantly, apologize for what happened and added:
A declaration of principles that those who use Twitter have known we were waiting for other cases in which this company has defended its users proactively. Freedom of expression and the rights of those who use its platform undoubtedly play a far more important than any sponsorship, and they know it perfectly. Twitter risked much by staying silent about the allegations of censorship: the resolution of the issue by Guy Adams and his statement has arrived just in time to prove that their community remains not only their greatest asset but also a priority.
