Twitter is acknowledging a mistake in how it handled a tweet by a Los Angeles-based journalist that included the email of the NBC Olympics president.

Alex Macgillivray, general counsel for the social media website, wrote in a blog post Tuesday that the company’s team working with NBC for their Olympic partnership “proactively” identified the tweet it said was in violation of its rules and encouraged the network to report it.
