Venture capitalist and millionaire investor Marc Andreessen claimed that he feels “50 pounds lighter” after quitting Twitter earlier this week.

“I feel 50 pounds lighter,” he declared. “I feel free as a bird.”

Andreessen, who has an estimated net worth of $700 million, had previously bantered with Breitbart Senior Editor Milo Yiannopoulos on Twitter after Milo lost his verification check in January, and he was challenged to an immigration debate by Ann Coulter after he made a number of pro-immigration comments last year.

It has been reported that Twitter is currently on the market, with Google, Verizon, Salesforce, and Disney listed as potential buyers of the social network.

On Monday, CNBC reported that a Twitter sale could happen “in next 30 to 45 days,” adding that Microsoft was also a potential buyer.
