The MSNBC anchor had suspended his account after outcry over his handling of Julian Assange rape allegations.

That was fast.

Keith Olbermann returned to Twitter early Monday morning -- about four days after announcing he would stop using the microblogging site after the outcry over his handling of the Julian Assange rape allegations.

On Thursday, Olbermann received a barrage of angry Tweets after discussing Assange's rape allegations with Michael Moore, who contributed $20,000 to bail the WikiLeaks founder out of jail. After, Tigerbeatdown.com took Olbermann to task for re-tweeting a link to a story that identified the women who accused Assange of raping them, leading Olbermann to write, "I'll thus unblock all blocks, wish you all a Merry Christmas and I'll suspend this account until/if this frenzy is stopped."

Early Monday morning, Olbermann wrote, "And we're back. Tweeting will resume tomorrow. Good night and... etc. (Avatar dates to 1971 at Yankee Stadium)."

Olbermann was briefly suspended in November by MSNBC for making political donations.
