Twitter Joins The Linux Foundation as A Silver Member

Social networking giant Twitter joined The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization while dedicated to accelerate the growth of Linux & open-source. In addition to Twitter, the Linux Foundation also announced that Inktank and Servergy have also become members. Twitter joined as a silver member, paying $15,000 for the privilege. The Linux Foundation announced Twitter’s membership today as it gears up for next week’s annual LinuxCon conference in San Diego. “Linux and its ability to be heavily tweaked is fundamental to our technology infrastructure,” said Chris Aniszczyk, manager of open source at Twitter, in a statement. “By joining The Linux Foundation, we can support an organization that is important to us and collaborate with a community that is advancing Linux as fast as we are improving Twitter.”
Twitter is a real-time information service on which people post ideas, comments and news in 140 characters or less. Twitter brings users closer to the topics, events and people they care most about around the world. Based in San Francisco, Twitter is available worldwide in 30 languages, with 140 million active users and 400 million Tweets per day. This volume of data puts high demands on real-time data processing and the pace of innovation at the company. Twitter is supported by tens of thousands of Linux machines, which allow the company to customize for its unique needs. Twitter is joining The Linux Foundation to support the mission of promoting, protecting and advancing Linux, the company said. Twitter’s Chris Aniszczyk will deliver a keynote at LinuxCon on Aug. 30 entitled “The OSS Behind a Tweet.” 
Google, Yahoo is another big Web company that is part of the foundation. One missing name is Facebook, but Zemlin hopes to get Mark Zuckerberg and team on board as well. "We would love to have them as a member," Zemlin said. "They do participate in our events around the Open Compute Project so that’s a good thing. Their business runs on Linux as well."
