The Man Behind @GSElevator

Lloyd Blankfein with Hamster

There's very little known about the man behind the Goldman Sachs Elevator Twitter persona @GSElevator.

CNNMONEY reports that the account, which is followed by more than 450,000 people, tweets bits of over-the-top chatter allegedly overheard in the vaunted bank's elevator.

Since 2011, @GSElevator's tweets have been giving followers, from super model Kate Upton to Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, juicy snippets about five-figure bar tabs, Rolexes and bed-hopping - the kind of glitz and greed on Wall Street narrative that people have been eating up since the financial crisis.

To many looking into this world from the outside, Goldman Sachs has been the main protagonist of that storyline.

Goldman Sachs spokesman Andrew Williams said trying to figure out who was behind the Twitter handle is a 'popular guessing game' at the bank. It's a game that's not without consequence, he added, saying that the Twitter exposure has made elevator conversation in the building a little boring.

@GSElevator agreed to a phone interview with CNNMoney on the condition that he wouldn't reveal his identity.
