The tweet life of interns

Jenna Johnson

Each week I keep an eye out for hilarious, amusing, cute or shocking tweets about internships and interns. Here's what tweeters were saying this week ...

@tbelkas Just heard an intern say about someone else, "she's 27, she's not old-old..not like, 40-old." Wonder if I can get away with saying I'm 24... July 9

@silviasellout being an intern at a cool music company is awesome. interning for free is not. #imbroke July 5

@sethland Today's job market: "I'm a recent MBA grad at __ School of Business and I'm applying for the position of Foodspotting intern" July 5

@davidsonrva @kmsYES our intern just emailed me & said "did I see you at Hadads with a bearded guy screaming 'MYSPACE MYSPACE' over & over?" July 6
