Repost: Wrong Call, Twitter


"I think Twitter's approach is being very heavy-handed,'' he said. "They suspended my account without warning me. They didn't tell me for 24 hours why it had been suspended.''


NBC has racked up record ratings through the first couple days of the London Games, but also has faced harsh criticism online, largely from American viewers upset with tape-delayed coverage. Angry Olympic fans used the hashtag "nbcfail'' and even set up at least one parody account poking fun at the TV wait.
The network is streaming the events online, but that clearly isn't enough for some viewers who shelled out thousands of dollars for big-screen TVs and want their live coverage.
"If this Gary Zenkel doesn't want to hear from the many tens of thousands of customers he upset with his network's coverage, I think he's in the wrong job,'' Adams said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.
When Twitter receives a complaint like the one against Adams, its support team does its own investigation before deciding whether to suspend the account.
Adams said he found Zenkel's email with a simple online search, but said he didn't grab it from an NBC website.
"His address is not a private email address,'' Adams said. "It's a corporate address. It's not his private email address. It's a corporate account. It's company information.''

I'm not watching the Olympics, anyway; and the only worth-it person this year on NBC at the Olympics is Bob Costas. Now I have one more reason not to give Anti-Semitic NBC any ratings: they're whiny. "If this Gary Zenkel doesn't want to hear from the many tens of thousands of customers he upset with his network's coverage, I think he's in the wrong job." 

By the way, unlike NBC, Fox News lets one contact them; and even the Fox News spouses who are public figures get involved--even if one doesn't like how they get involved. To be fair, for example, to Geraldo Rivera's wife, she did get involved when I had some complaints about her influence on Geraldo and her befriending Traci Lynn Johnson (Traci Lynn Barber by now, I suppose). She at least took my complaints seriously enough, even if she didn't find them legitimate, to respond to them. Furthermore, to be fair, she did--as I stated--influence a change a heart in me.


Back to the point, Twitter made the wrong call and gave an Anti-Semitic (with the exception of Bob Costas) and whiny network too much credence or kavod, or whatever you want to call it. Twitter, therefore, should give Guy Adams his Twitter account back (and so be if this blog entry gets me suspended from Twitter; I wouldn't support the Anti-Semitic NBC, who could've easily boycotted the IOC for refusing to remember the murder victims in Munich, anyway. Why Twitter did, I'll never know.).


Meanwhile and while I'm obviously calling for a boycott of all of NBC but for Bob Costas, I want to give one more plug to open and Philosemitic Fox News--and a shout-out for a happy seventh birthday to Sol Rivera (Geraldo's and Erica's daughter) and a happy ninth anniversary to Geraldo and Erica (Make this one last, Geraldo!).
