What’s your favorite video sharing platform?


It’s Intern Week on the USA TODAY Tumblr! Social media interns Alex Laughlin (left) and Marlena Chertock will be posting all week. We think they’re pretty great, and we think you will, too. (You can also follow our excellent Interns Tumblr for more about what the whole crew is up to.)

About Alex: 

Hi everyone! I’m a women’s studies major with an English minor at University of Georgia and I’ll be graduating in the spring. I enjoy blank notebooks and holding my iPhone without a case. Favorite memes include Feminist Taylor Swift and Potato Jesus. I love making online friends, so say hi on Twitter @alexlaughs.  

About Marlena:

I’m a senior journalism major at the University of Maryland. I have a passion for writing feature articles and poetry, editing, social media, designing layout and interactive website design. I’m learning JavaScript, trying to make a great Vine (or now a video Instagram) and searching for the best tea. View my online portfolio here. Find me on Twitter at @mchertock.

Take it away!

Eep! Check it out yall.
