Hilarious (& sweet) intern tweets of the week

Jenna Johnson

Every week I compile a list of internship-related tweets that catch my eye. There are a lot of interns on Twitter complaining about their internships, employers complaining about their interns, and both parties publicly confessing to things they really shouldn't make public. (Next week send me tweets you find! @wpjenna)
