Alec Baldwin tweeted: "I think I'm leaving NBC just in time."

That was enough to spark a thousand rumors concerning his future on 30 Rock.

So is it really true? Plus, why does the actor have a bone to pick with the morning news show?

Fret not, Jack Donaghy fans! A source tells us that Baldwin is completely committed to 30 Rock and nothing has changed concerning his role on the show. Phew!

So what were Baldwin's tweets about then?

The source tells E! News that Baldwin was likely upset that Today was doing a shoot outside of his apartment, which showed his address and the name of his building, in a story about the arrest of his alleged stalker.

"I haven't appeared on the Today Show in many years. But did they have to camp outside my apt?" Baldwin wrote. "A story about stalking sure brings out the stalkers in the media. But, the Today Show? No one from NBC contacted me until the Today Show arrived at my apt."

This isn't the first time there's been speculation over Baldwin's future on the NBC comedy. In 2010, he told CNN, "As much as I like acting, I know that I would love to have a different life. A private life. I think that doing this now for a living has become really, really hard. I would rather go do other things, and with whatever amount of time I have left in my life, have more of a normal life."

This also isn't the first time Baldwin's Twitter posts have made headlines. Baldwin took a Twitter hiatus following his feud with American Airlines.
