HuffPost Live hosts Ahmed Shihab-Eldin and Marc Lamont Hill spoke with Guy Adams by phone earlier this morning before he was reinstated on Twitter. WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE.
Guy Adams is back on Twitter after his account was suspended over a tweet about NBC's Olympics coverage. Before his account was reinstated on Tuesday, however, he fired back at Twitter in an interview with HuffPost Live.
Adams, a correspondent for The Independent, took to Twitter to complain about NBC's handling of the Olympics last week. On Friday, he directed viewers to send their grievances directly to Gary Zenkel, the president of NBC's coverage, and tweeted his email address. "The man responsible for NBC pretending the Olympics haven't started yet is Gary Zenkel. Tell him what u think!" Adams wrote.
Moments before his account was restored, Adams spoke out about the situation with HuffPost Live hosts Ahmed Shihab-Eldin and Marc Lamont Hill.
"I've emailed them back and my position is, I've read their rules, I’ve reread their rules, I still don’t understand how I broke them," he told them. "I think they’re making up their rules as they go along frankly."
He said that he has tried to get in touch with someone to discuss the situation, to no avail. "I’ve tried, I’ve left my phone number, I’ve sent emails, I cant get anyone at twitter to talk to me about this,” he said.
Twitter reinstated his account on Tuesday after NBC withdrew its complaint. Adams jokingly tweeted after the suspension, "Twitter's full email will be on The Indy's website shortly."
