The chance of Twitter to ever become a way of delivering news content was scuppered by the fact that the service censors users upon the request of the broadcasters.


According to media reports, Twitter has suspended a British journalist who posted critical tweets of NBC’s Olympics coverage. After NBC complained, independent hack Guy Adams was censored by the service.

The statistics say that the social media network received thousands of angry tweets after the Twitter feed of Guy Adams of the Independent had gone. In response, NBC has confirmed that the company complained to Twitter after Guy Adams had made the email address of one of its senior bosses available to public, pointing out that this was a violation of the privacy policy of the social service.

The address in question belonged to Gary Zenkel, the president of NBC Olympics. In his tweet, Adams suggested that people should complain to Zenkel about the TV network’s delayed broadcast of the opening ceremony of the Olympics.

Guy Adams responded that the email address wasn’t a private one, but rather a corporate account, so shutting his Tweeter feed down looked like an attempt from NBC to silence Adams’ coverage.

The journalist believes that NBC were money grabbers for refusing to broadcast the opening of the Games live because the company wanted to maximize its advertising revenue during prime time. As a result, the United States had to watch the opening ceremony 6 hours behind the rest of the world.

In addition, when NBC finally broadcasted, they made a number of offensive remarks about the British: for instance, a commentator claimed he had never heard of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the British inventor of the Internet. The critics were surprised that some American journalists even knew where the United Kingdom is.

No avatarThe independent has no credibility at the best of times.. So coupled with twitter it's an entire waste of the universes resources

KitchenSync_RG avatarWow, how "offensive." Someone in America has never heard of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, some guy in another flippin' country. Geez, people. Most of us haven't heard of him. That's not something to be surprised about. For Christ's sake, if you asked people on any American street who Maggie Thatcher was, most of them wouldn't know, and she was the friggin PM!

And if you asked people on British streets about various notable Americans, many of them wouldn't know, either. Why? Because they're in ANOTHER COUNTRY! Sheesh. (And BTW, I've been surfing a keyboard for about 35 years now, was part of the early BBS community in the '80s, have been sysop and admin on multiple boards and websites, and y'know what? I'd never heard of the guy, either.)

No avatarWhile it does not surprise me that twitter is not good for news sources and info. It also does not surprise me that americans (most, not all) does not know who Sir Tim Berners-Lee is, simply because they don't particularly care to search for it and find out. In this day and age, it's mostly about moving forward and living fast with the times (and this goes for almost all countries). Only few actually want to read things up and learn interesting things.

capnmorgan5150 avatarWhen did Twitter ever have news credibility? It's just a bunch of opinions from half-wits.

No avatarSo British journalists insult the person by inferring the American wouldn't know where a Country is, but its not ok to Not know who a PERSON FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY is? Give me a break. I'm not American, but you are so bias its pathetic.

Another question, was his message censored, or was just the email address removed? If just the email address, Twitter was following their policy that everyone using Twitter agreed to. If they changed the whole content of the message, then that is censorship.
