Twinterns are this season's hot new vassals


I'm already sick of "Twinterns" and "Twinternships," and the obnoxious nomenclature didn't even exist two weeks ago. The phrase has nothing to do with twins, and everything to do with Twitter—it refers to an intern whose job consists mainly of Tweeting and enhancing or following a company's profile in social media. If these posts are unpaid, well, then they're copying Twitter's monetization model, too. Pizza Hut has one such opening at present. There are a couple of former Domino's employees in North Carolina who are in need of work and who have plenty of social-media exposure. But their particular experience is not preferred, as a modicum of decency and common sense is clearly required.
