When some people do work experience they make the tea, do some photocopying and try their hardest at the tasks they’re assigned, quietly hoping they’re not being a nuisance or getting in the way.

Eddie, a 15-year-old boy currently on a placement at Southern Rail, does things a little differently. For him, taking over the company’s Twitter page, sparking a hashtag dedicated to him, and acquiring hundreds of fans was all in a day’s work (experience).

The teenager was tasked with managing questions coming in to the Southern Rail social media team on Tuesday. Which, in a world where engineering works, delays, and leaves on the line really rile people up, we can imagine is a pretty tough job. But Eddie showed everyone how social media is done.
