Blackball Bill of the Total Frat Move site has been following the @GSElevator account, reportedly opened by an anonymous career banker inside Goldman Sachs who shares some of the "hilarious banter that takes place in the privacy of the GS elevators".

Since then, the account has evolved to include things overheard on trading floors, bullpens, lobbies and bars. Some of the conversations involve more than one person, and the participants are distinguishable by their number (#1, #2, #3).

Blackball Bill has put together a list of his favourite tweets from the account. Here is some of mine:

#1: She's only about 3 weeks of anorexia away from looking hot.
#2: Maybe 4.

#1: Can we please stop calling them 'hipsters' and go back to calling them 'pussies?'

#1: My garbage disposal eats better than 98% of the world.
