Social networking companies employ people from all backgrounds and walks of life, not just technology and engineering majors. Rembert Browne, creative lead, brand and voice at Twitter, certainly fits that bill.

“I wanted to be the mayor of Atlanta until I was 22,” Browne said. “I still kind of do.”

The Atlanta native graduated from Dartmouth University in 2009, earning a Bachelor of Arts after studying sociology, geography and public policy. After finding that “there were no jobs anywhere,” he started graduate school at Columbia University, studying urban planning.

Browne said columns he wrote on student life at Dartmouth “ended up being a thing,” and his blog was noticed by people at an early iteration of Grantland, where he ended up working until the now-defunct sports and pop culture blog’s last day in October 2015.
