Twitter Trust and Safety
No explanation, no apology, and yet significantly longer than 140 characters.
UPDATE LE TROIS: Twitter has, finally, broken its official silence on this matter, via a blog post by General Counsel Alex Macgillivray. The upshot: A partial apology -- not for booting Adams and creating this whole kerfuffle, but for "proactively identifying a tweet in violation of the Twitter Rules" and notifying NBC about it. In other words, they still feel they did the right thing by blocking Adams, even if they did the wrong thing first. Everybody clear on that?
