Twitter suspends Oracle exec for tweeting contact info for reporter

The executive, Ken Glueck, had criticized the Intercept's Mara Hvistendahl for reporting on Oracle's China business.

Twitter asked Oracle's Ken Glueck to delete a tweet containing personal contact information for a reporter and handed him a 12-hour timeout under Twitter's conduct rules Wednesday, according to a report.

Earlier in the day, Mara Hvistendahl of the Intercept sarcastically responded on Twitter to a rambling post from Glueck on Oracle's corporate blog Wednesday morning that attempted to push back on her reporting of the enterprise software company's ties to the Chinese government. Glueck also encouraged readers that "If you have any information about Mara or her reporting, write me securely at kglueck AT" Glueck then encouraged his Twitter followers to contact Hvistendahl using her Signal number and email, which Twitter considered doxing, according to Gizmodo.

Glueck, an executive vice president at Oracle, is known for his enthusiastic lobbying on behalf of Oracle and against its competitors in Washington circles.
