Keeping Yashar Ali in my closet like E.T. so my parents don't find him... feeding him Reese's Pieces as he jabbers quietly... "In the pilot for Always Sunny Charlie says the N-word and we still need to have a conversation about it"... shush down my friend, it's night time....
Since he’s trending, it must be reiterated that Yashar Ali’s profile pic is a remarkable piece of art https://t.co/4znxcuQZK5
In just a few years, Yashar Ali has become one of the most fearsome media figures in the country—mobilizing his vast Twitter following to promote his famous friends and punish foes. Can his own past survive similar scrutiny? https://t.co/SVGHPW7mgg
CIA agent to Tapper after spiking him with LSD : you’ve known Yashar Ali all your life.
I too have a story to share about Yashar Ali. I met him at the same 2008 event for prominent Hillary supporters as Susie Tompkins Buell. Shortly after, Susie formed WomenCount with West Coast supporters. 30 East Coast supporters formed The New Agenda.
This story is troubling on so many levels. (And I hope saying this doesn't destroy my life). https://t.co/Y3QDqlcBRL
Well this is something. (And it says Alison Roman is still angry. No shit. She should be angry. What Yashar and others did to her was total bullshit.) https://t.co/QOuYGkxrsL
Pleased that someone has ventured to answer the question, "Hey, what's the deal with that guy?", though I'm not sure the enigma has been solved. Anyway, red flags everywhere. https://t.co/mvtLGk4tON
Twitter is full of weirdo grifters. But Yashar Ali finessing Kathy Griffin and a Getty heir is the funniest thing I’ve ever heard.
so yashar ali is a guy who gets paid to gossip and couch surfs in other’s homes? wow he really is iranian
The LA Mag piece taking down Yashar Ali is great, but let's not forget that he also tweeted the Whistleblower's name during the 2019 impeachment trial - the kind of thing that would get a less influential person kicked out of journalism. https://t.co/SP6vNUwKVF
Most insane part of the Yashar Ali piece that no one seems to mention
So, the Yashar Ali story, which is trending.
An interesting aspect is that no reporters in the mainstream press, major newspapers did this story. They'd surely all heard what everyone else heard.
But...he helped amplify their work on Twitter. So -- not important.
i have read the yashar ali piece and my main question is: how do you get to a point in a relationship where you can ask someone to stay in their mansion? and then be able to stay for months at a time?
summer's coming and i'd really like to stay somewhere with a pool https://t.co/CAa4LvgMtz
I chuckled when Yashar Ali said “people don’t take care of people like me” and the writer gives us a whole paragraph of why that isn’t true https://t.co/OfoY4DbB9t
Been hearing some strange sounds around the house and I’m pretty sure it’s either a ghost or Yashar Ali living in my basement
The Yashar Ali article took me on a wild ride. He literally turned "eating the rich" into a career by befriending them, living off them, and then getting them fired lmao https://t.co/bLctqM6PdN
My favorite part of Yashar Ali’s over-the-top fake avatar is where he straight up drew solid black lines over the sides of his face to hide its fatness. https://t.co/aBomE6kxiP
This spooky read would have been perfect for Halloween but I guess we’ll take being unsettled in June: https://t.co/QkpNxtWEOh
The paragraph where no one has any idea how they met this man even though he’s one of their best friends is masterfully executed.
The Yashar Ali story has me thinking about how twitter has become a place where people can legit build careers out of nothing, but also still want it to be a drop zone for all their unfiltered brain vomit, and how these things are and aren’t at odds, depending on context
This is the kind of person who can only live on twitter but damn this story takes on a Six Degrees of Separation twist. Hope someone is doing a doc. I responded to his recent tweets because I lost my son in Jan now trying to find my comment to delete https://t.co/NMNnKHADd9
We’re not big on rules but let’s all try to find some new/fresh conversation topics for drop off. Almost every parent just repeats shit they read on Yashar Ali’s Twitter account and maybe that’s not the most productive use of space?
