Ex-Gawker employee dishing dirt?

There's a new Twitter account, @ExMediaMan, allegedly written by a former Gawker/Buzzfeed/Huffpost employee, who is dishing dirt on *all* the viral news generators. (e.g. "Nick Denton is a noted racist, but in a non-vitriolic way...") As I type this, he (or she) has 777 followers, and the buzz is spreading fast. The DailyDot has a brief write-up. Personally, I'm still very skeptical about the account, and this feels like the type of prank Ryan Holiday would pull to prove how gullible the media is! But it's definitely worth keeping an eye on.
