No more tweeting should be necessary! Oprah will get PLENTY of viewers when she airs her two-hour Whitney Houston tribute this Thursday!
On Sunday, Oprah Winfrey got into some trouble by tweeting the following message to her followers (which she has since deleted):
"Every 1 who can please turn to OWN especially if u have a Neilsen box."
Immediately, the twittersphere began criticizing her for being "desperate," and people accused her of "begging for viewers."
When Nielsen learned about the tweet, they released the following statement:
"In accordance with our policies and procedures, Nielsen is reviewing this incident with our clients and we may withhold, breakout and/or make a note in the ratings. We take any violation of our policy seriously and will work with clients to resolve the situation."
Here's what Oprah had to say in response to a bunch of angry tweets:
