Anonymous Twitter account dishes dark secrets about New Media

Sex, drugs, and clickbait.

There is, of course, no way of knowing that the gossip in the bitter Twitter feed of @ExMediaMan is accurate. There is no way of knowing if this man really exists and/or really worked for these organizations. But in the 14 hours since he began posting incendiary comments about today’s biggest viral news sites, his anger and disgust have seemed quite genuine.

Forget Whisper and Secret. This dude, whose résumé apparently encompasses GawkerBuzzFeedThe AtlanticHuffington Post, and Daily Mail Online, has enough dirt to bury the entire Internet, and it’s not going to fit on some dinky postcard image. After 10 years in the industry, he’s “had enough,” his bio states. Hence this slew of bracing Real Talk™: 

Although we’ve had no luck so far in deducing who @ExMediaMan might be (BuzzFeed does occasionally fire people, and it’s unclear whether this man’s career followed the editorial or business track), we expect an unmasking in due course—whether self-performed or at the hands of Web sleuths.

Until then, we’ll be cackling over here in the corner. And awaiting our turn to get burned.
