The sometimes-blasted, sometimes-praised left-wing host of MSNBC’s most popular show abruptly signed off for the last time on Friday, but Keith Olbermann isn’t gone for good – at least not on Twitter. The former host of Countdown has been actively changing his Twitter bio after leaving MSNBC late last week, and, although he hasn’t posted any new tweets himself, the Twitterverse is exploding with comments from his supporters, his critics and all those in between.
Olbermann has been leaving cryptic messages for his followers on his Twitter bio this weekend, but hasn’t tweeted a thing since he quit Countdown. In addition to his bio advertising that he will get back into sports blogging in early February, Olbermann left variations of “WATCHTHISSPACE” and “W A T C H__________T H I S__________S P A C E” for his followers to puzzle over.
While we can’t be sure what this, or his current message (“You might very well think so; I could not possibly comment.”) might signify, it’s clear there’s some pretty interesting stuff up this liberal superstar’s sleeve.
We’ll leave it to the Twitterverse to piece together just why Olbermann left, what repercussions this will have, and what he might be up to next:
I’m with Olbermann
A little too much information
No point in trying to guess what’s next for Olbermann, if no one cares.
Getting to them early
Are you implying Olbermann’s viewership was young?
A personal request
It’s not easy being a poor student… but we suspect being a super-rich ex-TV superstar comes with its own bag of troubles.
The end of an era
Some see his departure as a graceful exit.
