New York magazine reports Pax Dickinson was "forced to resign as chief technology officer at Business Insider" after the internet read his tweets. We're waiting for confirmation from Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget.

Update: Blodget just posted the following statement:

A Business Insider executive has made some comments on Twitter that do not reflect our values and have no place at our company. The executive has left the company, effective immediately.

Business Insider's team is composed of more than 100 talented men and women of many backgrounds, and we highly value this diversity.
