Hello World

Wednesday, 3 February 2010

Welcome! I’m Ben, and I’m an engineer at Twitter. We’ve started this blog to show some of the cool things we’re creating and tough problems we’re solving.

As a fun way to kick things off, I ran Code Swarm over a few essential production apps. Icons represent developers, and particles represent files added or modified. It doesn’t cover prototypes or contributions to open source, so it isn’t exactly scientific, but it still goes to show Twitter’s explosive growth mirrored in engineering.

(The forked version of Code Swarm that adds rounded avatars and particle trails is available on github.)
