33-year-old Twitter intern offers job to whoever can help him center a div

George Hotz (33) (thirty three) (yeah three three), a Twitter intern hand-picked by owner Elon Musk, issued a challenge this morning; “I want this div to be in the middle of the screen - horizontally and vertically”. Although Hotz disclaimed that he’s “not sure he has the authority to do [so]”, he put an internship on the table. “This is the interview”, Hotz said.

Some users pointed out that this problem is (generously) trivial to intermediate-level front-end web developers, but were met with prompt account suspension. Some more helpful users referred Hotz to solutions easily discovered with a Google search, to which Hotz acknowledged the effort, but complained he had a hard time understanding the cookie consent notice and was therefore unable to use Stack Overflow.
