On Friday, Fox News announced that it has "parted ways" with Sarah Palin and will not renew her contract as a contributor.

The New York Times reports:

It was unclear whether the parting was Ms. Palin’s choice. Bill Shine, an executive vice president at Fox, said in a statement, “We have thoroughly enjoyed our association with Governor Palin. We wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

As of last week, Ms. Palin remained in negotiations with Fox News about a new contract. Her original contract with the network started in January 2010 and ended this month.

Twitter, as expected, was delighted:
