On Fridays, staff writer Marcus Jackson (@MarcusJ_NG) will provide a quick glance at the best that Twitter has to offer.

TOP TWEETS

Politics

— In addition to all those things, it wasn't the racism exhibited by O'Reilly or the $13 million that he and Fox had to pay to harassment victims, it was the loss of advertising that seemed to be the last straw.

Music

— Prince fans were excited earlier in the week at this news, but unfortunately a judge blocked the release of "Deliverance" following a lawsuit by the late singer's estate.

Hollywood

— The Knicks star and his wife, star of the television series "Power," are on the outs, and it's been a hot topic. Perhaps now he'll be willing to leave New York.

Local

— The rapper played State Farm Center last week, and we're guessing "kraaazzyyy" is an extreme level of "crazy," meaning everything went well.

Sports

— It's no secret that Williams and Sharapova aren't friends, but a good question is how deep into her pregnancy could Williams get while still being able to defeat Sharapova?

That's rich, Jackson calling someone else a racist.
