Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu had his Twitter account suspended - for "aggressive" behaviour.
The South African Archbishop had only just signed up and was following 30 people.
A statement on the his legacy foundation's website said: "Twitter has not explained how following 30 people could be construed as “aggressive following” or whether the number of people who followed @TutuLegacy in a short space of time was to blame."
His daughter, Reverend MphoTutu, who runs the foundation, expressed her dismay, saying: "I hope the powers that be at Twitter find it in their hearts to fix the problem and let us communicate again."
It was later restored, and Twitter apologised.
The new account is the only official one for Tutu and his foundation.
