Our search infrastructure team is building Omnisearch, a new information retrieval system to power the next generation of relevance-based, personalized products. We recently launched SuperRoot, the first major architectural component of Omnisearch. In this blog post, we detail the path to building and launching a high-SLA production system at Twitter.
Security on a global platform like Twitter is a 24/7 job – we are constantly evolving to respond to new threats and attacks against our users and our systems. In order to stay ahead of the game we staff dedicated account-, network-, enterprise-, corporate-, and application-security teams, as well as an incident detection and response team.
