Former MSNBC Countdown host Keith Olbermann who signed off the air last Friday night has reemerged on the internet via Twitter with what he calls the Friends of Keith or FOK News Channel.
Olbermann launched his “channel” yesterday ahead of the president’s SOTU speech but chose to use his regular Twitter account for tweets about Obama.
Despite the hasty launch, Olbermann who has some 208,000 followers on Twitter has manged to attract more than 20,000 people to his new account and it will undoubtedly grow even larger once he start tweeting about Fox News as his followers are hoping for.
We’ll just have to wait and see what comes next but being free of MSNBC he can now rant to his hearts content and make political contributions without fear of being suspended.
Maybe we need an account dedicated solely to the liberal bias on Twitter.
