Cohen taking a break from Twitter

He also raised eyebrows again in April after tweeting, and subsequently deleting, a post that called singer Cyndi Lauper “hot” and praised her performance of the Otis Redding classic “Try a Little Tenderness” at the White House.

At a press conference, he declared the deleted Lauper Twitter messages were a ruse to teach the press a lesson and to promote Memphis music.

No word on what prompted Cohen to put the kibosh on tweeting to his more than 7,000 followers for seven whole days. A spokesman was away from the office and another staffer didn’t return ITK’s request for comment on Cohen’s social media vacay.
