    When should I apply?

    Now! Our application is open starting August 1, 2019, for our 2020 opportunities. The application closes on March 30, 2020.


    Do I meet the requirements?

    You should be: At least 18 years old, and enrolled in a two to four year academic institution working on an undergrad, grad, or PhD degree. Interns should also be able to complete the full 12-week internship program.


    Where can I intern?
    All over the place. We have internship opportunities across the globe in all our offices. We usually hire the most students to intern at our San Francisco, Boston, New York, Boulder, Seattle, London, and Singapore offices. 


    Do you hire international students?

    Yes. Our Immigration Team works with students to get work authorization for both full-time roles and internships.


    When does Twitter have internships?

    Spring, summer, and fall. Twitter also supports students in co-op programs.


    Are there internships for undergrad first-year students?

    No, but we do have #EarlyBird, a weeklong experience at our San Francisco office. Learn more about #EarlyBird at


    How about undergrad second-year students?

    Second-year students can apply to Twitter Academy, which is a 12-week summer internship in San Francisco. To learn more, please visit


    #EarlyBird and Twitter Academy are specifically designed for underrepresented groups (black, Hispanic/Latinx and/or Native American) in tech. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to apply.


    What is the hiring process for full-time roles and internship opportunities?

    Once your application is complete, our teams will review it. If a team is interested, we’ll reach out to begin the interview process. It goes like this:


    • First round, via phone or video conference

    • Second (and final) round: in person or via video conference


    When will I hear back from TwitterU?

    We are continuously sharing your resume with our hiring managers throughout the recruiting season for all our open full-time roles and internship opportunities. If a team is interested in your profile, TwitterU will reach out.  


    Why did I receive a HackerRank coding challenge?

    You selected Software Engineering and/or Infrastructure Engineering from the career interests on the University Recruiting application. While it is not mandatory, HackerRank allows you to demonstrate your technical aptitude, and it is in your best interest to complete a coding challenge for roles at Twitter. Coding challenges do not guarantee a next round of interviews.


    I’ve already interned at Twitter. Can I apply again?
    Absolutely — the application process is the same.


    I applied and didn’t get it — what now?
    Try again! You can submit once per season. If you reapply next year for 2020 opportunities, your resume should show new experiences (like a new internship or extracurricular project).


    Do I get paid?
    Yes. We pay competitive salaries for both full-time roles and internship opportunities. Full-time candidates can receive relocation support, and interns receive a housing stipend.


    What if I’m not enrolled in school right now?

    If you aren't enrolled in school when you apply, you aren't eligible for our intern or recent graduate opportunities. Instead, visit to search and apply for opportunities to #JoinTheFlock


    Where do I find you on campus?

    The Twitter University team travels to campuses and conferences all around the world. Check for more info.
