LONDON (AP) -- A Los Angeles-based reporter for a British newspaper says his Twitter account has been suspended after he criticized NBC's coverage of the Olympics.

Guy Adams says in a story posted on The Independent website Monday that he was upset with the network's decision to broadcast the opening ceremony on tape delay. He sent a tweet blaming NBC Olympics executive Gary Zenkel that included his email address.

Adams says he checked his Twitter account Sunday and received a message that it was suspended. He then received an email Monday that attributed the move to his tweet that included Zenkel's email. Adams says he is trying to find out more about his suspension.

NBC and Twitter have partnered on a handful of projects for this Olympics.
