As expected Twitter has now officially joined The Linux Foundation.
The company said in a blog post:
Today Twitter officially joins the Linux Foundation (@linuxfoundation), the nonprofit consortium dedicated to protecting and promoting the growth of the Linux operating system. We have tens of thousands machines running all types of services that run a tweaked version of Linux. One reason we support Linux is that open source development lets us control our destiny — we are able to innovate faster given the flexibility to customize based on our needs. We also love the large, stable and mature development community with whom we can collaborate to move the state of the kernel forward.
happy 21st birthday to
#linux, we’re proud to support the @linuxfoundation wired.com/thisdayintech/…
