Twitter is not only a GREAT tool for stock commentary, but also great for announcing meaningful precedents like THIS and of course for quick wit and humor.
I love following accounts on Twitter that combine humor with finance and politics.
GSElevator is a perfect example of that.
He was recently exposed a liar, but that doesn’t takeaway from his great wit and Wall Street cynicism as you’ll see below.
I am also someone who has long been cynical of Wall Street and the people that build their entire sense of self around it.” So why did he start this twitter account? (this is the great part) He said, “I also thought that despite the disdain out there that exists for Wall Street professionals, people still really have no idea really how bad it is — and how shallow the industry really is, and frankly, how unimpressive 98 percent of the employees are.” Ouch.
