The Linux Foundation enables companies and consumers to come together to discuss and collaborate on development of Linux. The foundation has attracted quite a few companies like IBM, Google, HP, Oracle in the past and Twitter will be joining the ranks next week

Chris Aniszczyk, Manager – Open Source at Twitter, said, “Linux and its ability to be heavily tweaked is fundamental to our technology infrastructure.” With thousands of Linux servers in its network the micro-blogging site will be joining the foundation in a bid to promote, protect and advance Linux.

Zniszczyk added, “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.”

Chris will be delivering the keynote with a presentation titled “The Open Source Technology Behind a Tweet” at Linux Foundation’s LinuxCon event next week.
