On Saturday afternoon, we noticed we had a new Twitter follower with an unusual name: @condeelevator.
We checked it out and, whoa, amazing.
The account, which currently has just nine tweets and 53 followers, chronicles the goings on at Four Times Square.
Or, more to the point: “Things heard in the Conde Nast elevators do not stay in the Conde Nast elevators.”
- Teen Vogue-er to Teen Vogue-er: “I don’t understand why she was so pissed. I’d want to know if something made me look fat.”
- Woman #1 to Woman #2, holding an omelet: “What’s the occasion?” Woman #2: “…huh?” Woman #1: “I would need an occasion to eat that.”
- And, of course, the always classic: [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] Summer Intern: “Was that…?” Intern #2: “Yeah” #annawintour
It’s the kind of feed you can see spiraling into awesomeness with just a bit of input from Conde staffers. (Of course, there’s always the possibility that the writer in question could be making up the quotes, inspired by The Devil Wears Prada and the cult of Conde but we sure hope the anecdotes are real. We have no reason to think they are not.)
We emailed the gmail account listed on the Twitter page to ask for an interview. After initially agreeing, the person(s) who runs the feed asked to push back a couple of weeks. We’ll wait, but in the meantime, we’ll be reading. The elevators have ears, you know?
