Twitter captures intern adventures (like answering calls about debt debate)


This week I have been visiting family in northern California and hardly working — but I still can’t stop reading the stream of tweets by or about interns. (I will also be online Thursday at 1 p.m. to answer questions about wrapping up your internship.)

Of note on Twitter: The last few days have brought a lot of sympathy for Hill interns, who are likely answering a slew of phone calls and constituent letters regarding the national debt debate.

Here’s a sampling of the chatter:
