'GS Elevator Gossip' Tweeter Loses Book Deal

Friday, March 07, 2014

John LeFevre, the man who was revealed to be behind the widely popular “GS Elevator Gossip” (@GSElevator) Twitter account, has lost his book deal.

The Twitter feed was supposedly made up of conversations overhead in the Goldman Sachs elevator but a New York Times reporter last week discovered that LeFevre never worked at Goldman Sachs.

His publisher initially stood by him, but yesterday canceled the book deal. The Atlantic’s Derek Thompson joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson with details.
