Keith Olbermann Breaks Silence: 'Greeting From Exile!'

The embattled host reaches out to fans on Twitter for the first time since his suspension Friday.

Keith Olbermann used his Twitter account to reach out to fans and supporters for the first time since he was suspended without pay by MSNBC on Friday.

"Greetings From Exile," he tweeted. "A quick overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO."

Olbermann was suspended without pay indefinitely Friday amidst revelations that the top-rated political talkshow host contributed to three Democratic candidates.

The prolific Tweeter has plenty of other support online as well. An online petition saveolbermann.com, aimed at reinstating the host, has received more than 280,000 online signatures as of Sunday.
