Twitter Joins the Linux Foundation
Twitter is joining the Linux Foundation, a nonprofit that oversees the open-source Linux operating system.
Chris Aniszczyk, open source manager at Twitter, confirmed the news on Friday, tweeting that the sponsorship decision has "been in the works for awhile. Twitter signed on as a silver member, which requires annual membership dues of $15,000.
Sponsored by major hardware and open source vendors, the Linux Foundation is dedicated to "fostering the growth of Linux." Sponsors get more of a say as to how Linux is developed, and the projects on which the foundation is working.
