British journalist's Twitter account suspended after he criticized
NBC's Olympics coverage

   "The Independent's Los Angeles bureau chief, Guy Adams, lost access to
    his Twitter account because he revealed the corporate email address of
    an NBC executive on Twitter after complaining about the network's
    Olympic coverage, John Koblin writes.  Adams called Matt Lauer a
    "tosspot," savaged NBC for making people on the West Coast wait six
    hours to watch the opening ceremonies and shared NBC Olympics
    President Gary Zenkel's work email address. Emails Koblin reproduces
    from Twitter say Adams got his account yanked because of that last
 - - -

It has now apparently been confirmed that NBC filed the complaint that
resulted in their Olympic partner -- Twitter -- suspending the
account.  However, the NBC exec in question's corporate email address
was already widely known -- consisting of the obvious
first.last@nbcuni.com -- and had been previously published on a range
of Web pages that I was able to find with just a minute of Google
