Twitter Expected to Join the Linux Foundation

Aug 27, 2012

Twitter is all over the map lately. Changes to its API have spurred a series of controversial moves, including a split from Tumblr. But now the micro-blogging site is joining the Linux Foundation, and is expected to announce it next week.

According to PCWorld, Chris Aniszczyk, manager of open source for Twitter said, "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."

Despite Twitter's recent reputation for not playing nice with others, the free service is made possible by a variety of open source products, including Linux.
