Tuning into TV
Mr. Baldwin’s spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik, said Wednesday it was the flight attendant who acted inappropriately. He said other people on the plane were violating the regulation and that Mr. Baldwin was singled out.
“The plane was already delayed half an hour at the gate when Alec was playing ‘Words With Friends,’ ” Mr. Hiltzik told the Associated Press. “Other passengers who tweeted flagrantly violated these rules without any repercussions — proving that they were obviously selectively enforced.”
Mr. Baldwin deactivated his Twitter account, and all of his previous tweets were removed. Mr. Hiltzik said that was because the actor was setting aside his Twitter activity to concentrate on “30 Rock.”
