In case you aren’t familiar with it, #THATintern highlights the worst of intern behavior. While Jenna may not know it, The Post interns are so afraid of being an example that we kind of avoid her desk.
In regards to the “Twittern,” she writes: “The Twittern has hundreds of followers who care deeply about what that intern has to say about anything and everything: If only that intern's co-workers were as entranced.”
If any of our Post co-workers have been following our Twitter handles lately, they would have noticed that the interns are working hard.
Metro intern Sara spent last Saturday tweeting from the Dalai Lama’s “A Talk for World Peace” at the Capitol Building. She’s been covering the 2011 Kalachakra for World Peace since before it started July 6. The result? Well, she sums it up herself on her Twitter feed: “Ah, my twitter has been taken over by journalism!”
Interactivity intern Brian has been using Twitter to promote content produced by his department such as quizzes and live chats. He’s also reminding all of us why we love working here: amazing opportunities, lots of food in the newsroom and morning meetings held on the roof because the weather is beautiful.
In the end, it seems that being the “Twittern” sometimes isn’t all that bad. That is, as long as you follow some taste guidelines and don’t go overboard — like these extreme tweeters.
