Twitter by the Numbers

With over 160 million users posting more than 90 million tweets per day,
it's no wonder that Alexa rates Twitter as one of the top 10 most
visited sites on the internet. What has this growth curve looked like,
and what tools and technologies does Twitter rely on to handle it? In
this talk, we'll give insight into the big engineering challenges we
face at Twitter -- systems that handle terabytes of data each day,
systems that handle hundreds of thousands of requests per second, and
more. We'll also discuss the core values and company culture at Twitter,
two of the non-engineering aspects of the business that make it such a
wonderful place to work.
