@CondeElevator Is No More

We only had you for a scant five days, but a wonderful five days they were! @CondeElevator, the mystery tweeter who gave us all a peek into life at Conde Nast via short eavesdropped dispatches, had to call it quits today.

The Daily Beast says the senior director of PR, Erin Kaplan, had been a suspect, but she denied it unequivocally in an email. Gawker has also tossed out a few suspects.

We may never know who this clever tweeter was. But we do know that employees can expose a lot of dirty (or just funny, lightly soiled) laundry about a company, whether intentionally or by accident.

“There used to be such a veil of secrecy and fear, and the fact that someone has the balls to do it says a lot about where the company has gone,” The Daily Beast quotes one Conde Nast staffer. “It just doesn’t necessarily wield the same power and fear it used to … I think people would have been much more afraid to do this five years ago.”
