Twitter selects AWS as strategic provider to serve timelines

Twitter will use AWS’s services and global infrastructure to power real-time, global traffic and improve the experience of its users.

Twitter has selected AWS to provide global cloud infrastructure to deliver Twitter timelines.

Under the multi-year deal, Twitter will leverage AWS’s infrastructure and portfolio of services to support delivery of millions of daily Tweets.

This expansion onto AWS marks the first time Twitter is leveraging the public cloud to scale its real-time service. Twitter will rely on the breadth and depth of AWS, including capabilities in compute, containers, storage and security, to reliably deliver the real-time service with the lowest latency, while continuing to develop and deploy new features to improve how people use Twitter.

The new agreement builds on the companies’ more than decade-long collaboration, where AWS continues to provide Twitter with storage, compute, database and content delivery services to support its distribution of images, videos and ad content.

“We are excited to work with AWS to expand the infrastructure Twitter uses to serve the public conversation as we grow globally,” said Parag Agrawal, Chief Technology Officer, Twitter.

“The collaboration with AWS will improve performance for people who use Twitter by enabling us to serve Tweets from data centers closer to our customers at the same time as we leverage the Arm-based architecture of AWS Graviton2 instances. In addition to helping us scale our infrastructure, this work with AWS enables us to ship features faster as we apply AWS’s diverse and growing portfolio of services.”
