After More Than A Year's Break - Emirati Commentator Sultan Al Qassemi Is BACK On Twitter
After a 12-month hiatus, Emirati columnist and commentator, Sultan Al Qassemi has rejoined the Twittersphere, and it's great news.
The high-profile commentator is known for his eloquent responses to political and international situations, and his insight via Twitter - but he disappeared from the platform in June 2017, only to resurface just recently.
The self-described 'columnist, art & architecture enthusiast' has more than 502,000 Twitter followers, and disappeared with no mention in June, 2017.
His last tweet in 2017
And has returned to Twitter with gusto
His first Tweet back
A good day to come back to Twitter in. I hope to see this happen elsewhere in our own region soon. I understand that the UAE played a leading role in this reconciliation, something to be commended and hopefully emulated. #Ethiopia 🇪🇹 #Eritrea 🇪🇷 https://t.co/cKHpRfcShz— سلطان سعود القاسمي (@SultanAlQassemi) July 9, 2018
He's also been working on a modern architecture book about Sharjah and announced he's working at the prestigious Yale University
Glad to share news that I will be based at @Yale University for the coming months as part of the Greenberg @WorldFellows Program alongside an exceptional group of individuals from around the world. https://t.co/idayyRoUHK ? @IbrahimaANiang @RoukaElpida @Pevelasco @leonidvolkov pic.twitter.com/bSH8OLvMzY— سلطان سعود القاسمي (@SultanAlQassemi) July 11, 2018
So despite his hiatus - it would seem he's been rather busy
Hear him speak more about the research in the recording of the architecture symposium he devised during his residency with us earlier this year (skip to 09:53): https://t.co/QdwOs3kGnm pic.twitter.com/WmIs3BFrRi— Delfina Foundation (@delfinafdn) July 10, 2018
