RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And onto some fratty shenanigans on Wall Street. Our last heard in business: Goldman Sachs Gossip.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

The author of the Twitter feed "@GSElevator" has been outed. The feed purported to leak comments overheard in the elevator at Goldman Sachs.

MONTAGNE: Comments from out-of-touch bankers.

GREENE: One Tweet: Some chick asked me what I would do with 10 million bucks. I told her I'd wonder where the rest of my money went.

MONTAGNE: Turns out the tweets and the Twitter feed are made up by a former bond trader who lives in Texas.

GREENE: Goldman Sachs issued this statement last night, quote, "We are pleased to report that the official ban on talking in elevators will be lifted effective immediately."

And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
