10 things you didn’t know about Twitter

Web

Last week, while I was in San Francisco for the Web 2.0 Expo, I spent a couple of hours at Twitter’s HQ with Twitter’s staff. Here are 10 fun pieces of Twitter trivia I discovered on my travels:

2. Tea time with Twitter

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
