Just a small announcement:
Starting today, I am now “MySQL Database Architect” at Twitter, where I am joining some old friends on the small but hard-working DBA and operations teams there. I’ll be working to help debug, support, and scale the MySQL databases, of course, and who knows what else. I’m looking forward to the challenges and fast paced operations again. I’m also looking forward to writing a lot more on this blog about MySQL. I’ve had a Twitter account for a long time, but I suppose I’ll write a lot more on it now:
Since I will now be commuting from Sunnyvale to San Francisco nearly daily, I think my old “Commuting” category will get more of a work-out too.
Congratulations. That is a great opportunity.

Congratulations! I’m sure you’ll have many challenges and great satisfaction.

Make us proud.
Congrats! I hope you’ll be able to share a few use cases with us.

Wow, excellent news for both you and Twitter! Congrats.
Good luck. Twitter rocks!
Damn, here go all the Twitter jokes. Have fun, over there, will you?! :-)
