Tweets give a glimpse of the life of the summer intern

Jenna Johnson

One of the filters on my Twitter feed brings up tweets about interns or internships around the country.

Some are interesting, others are funny, but some make me want to shout, "Don't you guys know these are public!?" Here are several that have caught my eye since internship season started a couple weeks ago:
