Twitter for students

Soar to new heights

We believe the open exchange of information can be a compelling force for good in the world, and we've built Twitter to be the real-time public platform for authentic voices, conversations, and ideas. We have a great space, an exciting road ahead, and a passionate group of people who use our product. We genuinely love what we do and we're looking for others who share our passion. 

As an intern or new grad, you’ll have the support you need — and the responsibility — to make a difference on a grand scale.  

Check back in August for our 2019 application

Get an unbeatable experience

We know passion matters, which is why it’s important you work on a team or project that's meaningful to you. All our teams are solving challenging problems impacting millions of users and one of those could be your perfect match. This is why we'll let you choose which team and location you prefer.

When you log into Twitter, you’ll likely see a feature shipped by an intern. All of our interns have a hand in building a product that’s changing the world — whether you're in engineering or global sales and revenue. You’re given the freedom to take risks and the ability to use your knowledge to tackle tough problems. Interns and full-time employees work hand-in-hand to empower the world to share ideas instantly.

We’ll match you with both a manager *and* mentor for support throughout your internship. In addition, you’ll meet with key leaders and innovators across the company. Every day you’ll work alongside some of the friendliest and smartest people in the business — in a transparent environment where hard work is expected and fun is never forgotten. From Q&A’s with the CEO to extreme go-kart racing, you’ll never have a dull moment and will always have an opportunity to learn and grow.
