In his first public statement since his farewell address on the final episode of Countdown last Friday, former MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann took to Twitter to thank his supporters and assure them he’ll be back. “My humble thanks to all Friends of Keith for the many kind words,” he just tweeted. “The reports of the death of my career are greatly exaggerated.” Olbermann, the host of MSNBC’s top-rated show Countdown, abruptly left the cable news channel on Friday night. Starting tonight, Countdown is being replaced by Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell, which moved to 8 PM.
