Oprah apologizes for TV tweets
Oprah Winfrey has issued an apology for breaking TV ratings rules and urging fans to watch her show “Oprah’s Next Chapter” show during the Grammy Awards telecast on Sunday.
The TV titan took to Twitter and invited followers to change the channel to her OWN network. She wrote, “Every1 who can please turn to OWN especially if u have a Nielsen box.” During a commercial break later, she added, “Commercial Grammy people..u can turn to OWN.” Ratings compilers at Nielsen weren’t from amused seeing the plea as a violation of their policy. Winfrey’s tweets were later removed.
In a statement to The New York Times, Winfrey said, “I removed the tweet at the request of Nielsen. I intended no harm and apologize for the reference.
