Larry Page stripped Google+ head Vic Gundotra off tweeting rights after Microsoft-Nokia deal comment
"Two turkeys do not make an Eagle." That was Google Plus head Vic Gundotra’s first hot-headed reaction to the just announced Microsoft-Nokia partnership in early 2011. 

And if Gundotra thought his first tweet would go unnoticed, he was damn wrong.

Shortly after, he got stripped off Tweeting rights with a direct plea from his 'boss,' Google’s chief executive Larry Page.

Now, almost two years after that, Gundotra appears to have been right (at least for the moment), but the snarky comment made waves, quickly interpreted as a direct shot at Microsoft and Nokia.


Gundotra first confessed about his limited presence on the microblogging platform at the SMX Social Media Marketing conference. And it seems the intervention of the ‘boss’ was more of an attempt to save him from trouble. 

Here’s the full transcript of what Gundotra said on his Twitter ban:



Google+ is actually doing more than well, it’s doing brilliant, according to Gundotra. He said it is the Internet’s fastest growing social network with more than 500 million people upgrading to it, and 235 million ‘active’ users. Still far from Facebook, but definitely not bad for what was deemed to become a ghost town.
