CNBC Anchor Kelly Evans Leaves Twitter

CNBC news anchor Kelly Evans has decided to engage in a Twitter-free lifestyle.

Evan’s colleague and fellow CNBC journalist Carl Quintanilla tweeted on Wednesday that she is leaving Twitter, along with almost every other social media platform.

“I’m sad to report that my colleague, Kelly Evans, has quit Twitter. (And most social media.),” said Quintanilla.

Quintanilla linked Evans’ now-defunct Twitter handle, stating it was “only 1/2 of Twitter’s fault” and that Evans is “interested in a social-free lifestyle — and agrees social ‘churn’ may rise in coming yrs.”

Evans’ departure from Twitter follows the cyber-abuse actress Leslie Jones faced earlier this week, in which she was targeted with racial slurs and negative comments.

“I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart,” Jones tweeted.

Twitter released a statement this week regarding the recent onslaught of cyber-bullying, saying the company will further investigate these examples of hate and maltreatment.

“We know many people believe we have not done enough to curb this type of behavior on Twitter. We agree,” the company stated.

Evans has yet to release a further statement.
