Twitter confronts ethics of commercial pressures in wake of Guy Adams 'mess'

Jillian York of the Electronic Frontier Foundation thinks the Adams saga has revealed a lack of clarity in Twitter's privacy policy. Adams was ostensibly suspended because he published the email address of an NBC executive, yet as he pointed out it was a public NBC address easily accessible on Google.

York also calls for a more robust system allowing challenges to Twitter's actions. "If Twitter decides that content should be taken down, there should be an appeals process allowing users to push back."
