But the twitter account, even if it is full of uncredited quotes and run by a douchebag, is still pretty damn funny. Give credit where it is due.
Yesterday this happened, in roughly this order:
I’m so hungover that my thoughts sound like Sylvester Stallone.
— Mike Drucker (@MikeDrucker) April 6, 2013
“I’m so hungover that my thoughts sound like Sylvester Stallone.” M.D. — GS Elevator Gossip (@GSElevator) April 6, 2013
So if you just read those two tweets alone you might think @GSElevator is just quoting Mike Drucker by citing his initials (who does that??). However, a typical reader of @GSElevator knows it’s finance/banking-oriented, so he/she likely assumed it was i) hilarious and ii) said by a Managing Director (emm dot dee dot) at GS. We all laugh regardless. Then:
@MikeDrucker: Hey, @GSElevator! Stop stealing my jokes. For someone making fun of Goldman Sachs, you’re just as bad as Goldman Sachs.
@GSElevator to @MikeDrucker: I have never tried to take credit for any comments that have quotation marks around them.
@MikeDrucker: Instead of quoting it and adding initials as you get retweets for yourself why not use my actual name?
@MikeDrucker: I’m going to block you now so you can’t steal more from me. Feel free to tweet this as overheard in an elevator, you fuck.
@MikeDrucker: For those that are calling me dramatic, I’m sorry. I can only work if I have jokes. If someone steals them, that’s like copying my résumé.
*The tweet above was subsequently deleted, but here it is in all its ugly screenshotted glory.
@MikeDrucker to @GSElevator: I may be ugly. I may suffer from depression. But you still steal jokes. Have a good night, you uncreative, awful human being.
@robdelaney: I ❤ @MikeDrucker & his superb tweets. I would like to have sex with him.
@GSElevator: I ❤ @robdelaney and @MikeDrucker. Because the world needs ditch diggers too….
Gross. I’m not that surprised though. And I’m guessing @GSElevator gains some sense and deletes his absurd … jabs…? But you know, this blog is here to remind him the internet is forever.
Also, I’m assuming @GSElevator is male, but I could be totally wrong. Maybe it is actually Amy Schumer, because that would make total sense.
UPDATE: @GSElevator deleted the whole thing. Mike Drucker also deleted his portion.
