Guess who has a telecommutable community management internship at a startup?

This me!

I'm going to be the intern everyone dreamed of, I tell you what. Now to actually get a job.

Looks like a cool startup, I've always wished commenting was more interactive and actually like a discussion. LJ is best at that and probably why its still so good for community building online. Other sites its more like I leave my comment and then never come back to it, rarely even knowing if anybody responded, let alone who they are and how I can talk with them about it later. I think Facebook's attempt at spreading itself across the internet is a good first step at that, allowing us to become internet citizens that can see and recognize each other in various places of discussion. But of course that has its own issues.

work it like there's no tomorrow...

The big mistakes I've seen friends that are still in college or fresh out of college make with internships is not treating it as if it's a job...and also not getting references. When you ask for references, ask for their personal email/phone in case they move on to another job. I had a friend that made the mistake of only having their work email address (no phone) and when she was up for a position...that person went to work elsewhere and she couldn't use that person anymore...

People don't realize that you can use customers, and folks that aren't your immediate supervisors as references (it can be someone else's manager in another group that your group interfaces with)...

Towards the end...try to see opportunities that could potentially turn into a job.

Only thing I'd worry about Twitter, is that they haven't made much money - most of it is liquid assets (Are they public?) since well they're free...

But they're based in the Bay area...unless they have offices in your neck of the woods...
