People behind Goldman Twitter parody to write book

Twitter Sign

@GSElevator, the Twitter account that claims to relay overheard conversations from inside the Goldman Sachs elevators, has had surprising longevity for an anonymous parody handle.

New York Magazine reports that the person (or people) behind the account, which has posted more than 1,000 tweets and amassed nearly 600,000 followers with banker bons mots like 'In the Hamptons, it's herpès' since it launched in 2011, has been branching out lately, with a @GSElevator guide to being a man and a set of pointers for interns, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Now, perhaps inevitably, @GSElevator has decided to write a book.

The proposal, which is being sent to editors at major publishing houses this week, hails the book as 'the definitive exposure of investment banking culture today.' The stories inside, the writer claims, will be '100% true, as seen and told through the intriguingly anonymous eyes and voice behind @GSElevator.'
