CNBC’s business news coverage took a humorous turn when Squawk Box anchors Joe Kernen and Andrew Ross Sorkin’s conversation turned to social media. 

On July 27, after reporting that Twitter shares were down following a disappointing quarter, Kernen revealed what he likes about Twitter and who he follows.

Kernen told Sorkin that he enjoys “blocking” and “unfollowing” people on Twitter. 

“Now I’m following like some climate skeptics and NewsBusters,” Kernen said. 

He added, “I’ve gotten rid of most of my colleagues here.”
