Unmasking the Conde Elevator Twitterer

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Along with following @condeelevator these days (over 38,000 followers already!), everyone is also wondering who is the mystery Conde Nast eavesdropper behind the account. Gawker investigates the situation by tracking the order of the initial followers of the account by names and associated publications. Clever. So far, a GQ staffer is looking pretty good, or maybe even Conde Nast PR itself. We're kind of hoping for the latter, just so no one gets fired. [Gawker]
