MSNBC’s Touré Stops Tweeting

Toure 304Following strong pushback from the Jewish community in May for Twitter comments deemed anti-semitic, MSNBC’s Touré has apparently found his social media solution: stop tweeting.

BuzzFeed’s Dorsey Shaw noticed yesterday that “The Cycle” co-host hasn’t tweeted since May 27, when he penned a tweet apologizing for “using a shorthand that was insensitive and wrong.”

The shorthand was in response to a user describing their family’s experience during and after the Holocaust. “The power of whiteness,” Toure tweeted in response.

“It was Touré’s personal choice to stop tweeting after deciding he has more valuable things to do than be on Twitter,” an MSNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser. “This was not a push or decision made by management.”
