Larry Page stripped Google+ head Vic Gundotra off tweeting rights after Microsoft-Nokia deal comment17
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.
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.
