Seabreeze Partners Management's Doug Kass can take Warren Buffett's slings and arrows, but he doesn't need them crowd-sourced.
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."
Ten minutes later, he added, "As I reflect on Father's Day, life is far too short to be exposed to haters. So I have decided to leave this platform for a while."
Kass, who was picked by Buffett to serve as the designated bear at Berkshire Hathaway's last annual meeting, has made a name for himself as a frequently-televised contrarian investor. He had more than 60,000 followers on Twitter.
