I too was bummed to get lesser money in my paycheck as an entry level engineer than as an intern in the same company. But then I realized that I get stocks, health insurance, travel and education fund, bonuses and get reimbursed for a lot of crap.
cough I'm seeking an internship for the summer. 2 semesters away from a BS in CS. Just got my first 'fun' test app onto the iOS market, cloudedbox.com/supersoaker.html. I'm still working on the proof that I'm worthy, but I cannot tell you how much I'd like to experience the techniques and tribulations of software engineering with a company anywhere in North California.

I'm the test lead at Animoto. I can't speak for the dev team here, but I, personally, would love to hire a test dev intern here in NYC.
Want to create a model-based test for our platform layer (in Ruby)? Want to create an AI to combat our back end Java "director" AI (yeah, in Java, of course or tell us how you'd rather do it)? Want to test render code (as in "game dev" sort of render code - perf-sensitive code that grids out video and sync'd audio to the limits the hardware will allow)? Do you hate "the cloud" (Amazon's in our case) and want to show everyone how fragile that is? Well . . . I would welcome an intern who wants to understand any of those things deeply and break dev code. So pick one and tell me how you want to break it.
The company supports open-sourcing your test code. Share it. Put it on your resume. Put us on your resume!
I only want someone who wants to blow up and/or set fire to and/or just do horrible, horrible things to the dev code.
My name is Drew. I break things for a living.
You? Write code and want to SMASH things? Obliterate them? Pulverize? Have other destructive fantasies but don't want to talk about it? Ask for me at email@example.com with the subject "SDET Intern".

Thanks for the question, it's a very good one. We are still working on developing an information architecture that makes more sense. As it stands, we've focused the home page on our editorial content rather than UGC (which tend to focus on Bieber for the most part and has massively quality variance). As noted, some of our better content & features often get buried.

This is starting to sound a bit like a complaint, but I'm not trying to complain here, I'm just curious. What _are_ you looking for?
Sorry, I can't say why you specifically didn't get an interview. There are a lot of factors to consider and a lot of candidates. No recruiting process is perfect. If you're really passionate about working at Twitter, please re-apply and include a cover letter. cc me if you feel like it (dloft) and I'll make sure you at least get a response.
Twitter is really a great place to work, filled with smart, productive, passionate and unabashedly quirky people. If you're one of those, I sincerely hope that we hire you.
Thanks dloft, I appreciate the response. I know you can't really answer why _I_ got rejected, I was just curious if there was something in particular they were looking for. Applying to companies and getting rejected tends to give very little feedback, and I'd like to know what I should be focusing on improving. I guess that's kind of par for the course though.
