Interns say good-bye on Twitter as summer winds down


Summer internships are winding down, and Twitter is abuzz with news of good-bye lunches, final presentations and messages like this one: “They've been amazing all summer, gonna miss them.”

After a summer of mostly intern-bashing on Twitter, it’s refreshing to see a wave of intern-praising.

This is my last round-up of intern-related tweets for the summer, but please make sure to keep in touch on Twitter (@wpjenna).
