Just an update on a post from last July:
A few days later DB posted the following at Biased-BBC:
A commenter at Biased-BBC has now posted a reply he received from the BBC World Service's complaints department to a complaint he put in about Naziru Mikailu's tweets (though it's unclear when it was received). It's worth sharing:
We have no way of knowing what that disciplinary action involved, of course - and another commenter quipped, 'They probably gave Mr Mikailu what we used to call “a damned good letting off”' - but looking at Naziru's still-busy Twitter feed it's clear that he's no longer tweeting anything remotely controversial. So he does appear to have learned his lesson after all.
Still, that re-statement of the BBC's Social Media Guidelines makes it clear that many of the tweets we've posted here - and that DB has posted at Biased-BBC - must surely be incompatible with the BBC's guidance.
More complaints to the BBC are needed.
