Kass said on Sunday that he was giving himself a Father's Day present: a reprieve from Twitter and the "haters" who hound him there.
"I've been on twitter for a while now," Kass, who has sent more than 13,000 messages on the service, wrote. "I try to provide thoughtful tweets that may help traders/investors. But too many haters."
