Matt Lauer apologized to his former intern for being “not so nice” over Twitter.

The intern named Mark Zinni shared his experience on “Today” show.

Zinni, interned for the show in 1997, the first year Lauer became a co-host, the rumors began from a follower on Tuesday explaining what his impression of Lauer was.

Lauer, who infrequently responds to Twitter mentions, saw the post and responded.

It seems to a tough time for Lauer, as his future is not certain in the “Today” show. There was a report by Deadline Hollywood that CNN host Anderson Cooper was contacted to replace Lauer when his contract expires in 2014.

He is widely blamed for the firing of the beloved Ann Curry, just after a year. Also for the dipped ratings that put the series behind morning show rival "Good Morning America."

While there are reports that claim Lauer, himself is considering switching networks and moving to ABC.
