The Guy Running @GSElevator is a Douchebag

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:

  And then…

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.

@GSElevator: Holy Shit! @MikeDrucker is ugly as shit. That’s why he’s just a writer and not a standup

*The tweet above was subsequently deleted, but here it is in all its ugly screenshotted glory.

Sorry about the floating "embed tweet" bubble. I wsn't planning to use this.

Sorry about the floating “embedded tweet” bubble. Wasn’t planning to use this.

@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.
