A Funny Story About a Conde Nast Elevator

incompetence devil wears prada gif miranda

In case you’re as daft as me, @CondeElevator was an utterly brilliant use of twitter to create a cross between Gossip Girl and The Devil Wears Prada that reached a popularity of just under 76K followers in a span of 5 days…in 2011. AND the anonymous author (now known as Lauren Bans) only just came out about it last night (20 hours ago) after drunkenly reading about the Goldman Sachs Elevator Twitter guy (who isn’t really that important, nor as funny).

The very tweet!

Since we’re all coming out now http://t.co/qaCNPkTv1z : I was @CondeElevator !— Lauren Bans (@LaurenBans) February 25, 2014

And since this was the first I had heard of these fashion elevator shenanigans, I had to do more research…and read all of the tweets. And then, because I didn’t want you to have to read ALL of them, nor did I want you to miss out on the golden nuggets that were some of these tweets, I pulled out the best, just for you.  Of course, I included the very first and very last tweet for continuity.

I genuinely hope you enjoyed this little blast from the past (2011) as much as I did. (GQ Interview)thats all devil wears prada miranda
