White House Reporter For ‘The New York Times’ Just Said He’s Deleting His Twitter

New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush has announced that he plans on deleting his account calling social media "too much of a distraction." 

Thrush has since clarified that he won't delete his account, fearing that someone would grab his account name and pose as him. 

In October, it emerged Trush, the then-senior Politico reporter, had allowed Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman to check his work before publication. “Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u,” Thrush wrote in an email to John Podesta, asking that the matter be kept between them. 

Thrush received backlash on social media after WikiLeaks revealed the arrangement.
