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.

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.
