Twitter suspends journalist's account for NBC criticism

I'm not sure how many members are aware of this 'incident', involving NBC's coverage of the Olympics. You can read further details here:

The Guardian is one of the leading broadsheet newspapers in the UK.

Mycroft’s popularity doesn’t surprise me at all. He is, after all, incredibly beautiful, clever and well-dressed. And beautiful. Did I mention that?

Good article. Not directly related but still to do with Twitter, so there is a link to this recent case here in the UK:

www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter_Joke_Trial

With a little more about it here:

A couple of extras relating to this: someone mentioned Stephen Fry in another section of this forum, he has a part to play in this prosecution as you will see. Al Murray is a comedian who plays the role of Pub Landlord on stage but he is also a history graduate and is tremendously well-read. A genuinely clever man.

Oh, so the one I posted wasn't what you were trying to post? because yours didn't work for me.

It's not working now for me either but it did when I first posted it because I checked...strange.
Your link is fine. It relates to the same incident. I guess if people are interested enough they can go on The Guardian's website and go onto the search function.
