John Legere vs. Nilay Patel 2014

So, has anyone been following this on Twitter? Nilay Patel makes joke about John Legere marrying Sprint's CEO, Legere actually responds to the joke, and then proceeds to dig up deleted(?) tweets just to use the phrase "throwing shade" to further extend the joke.

I'm not sure what professionalism is, but if Managing Editors act this way over the internet, in a very public eye, it seems rather unprofessional. You can't control John Legere, but feeding the fire from either side seems. . . iffy, somehow.
