2007 - 2011


Twitterfeed allowed users to automatically publish their content (for example, blog posts or any other content that supports RSS feeds) to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social platforms. It enabled publishers to bring content to a wider audience and track the performance through real-time stats.

Originally conceived as a side-project to enable me, as an early adopter and fan of Twitter, to see news headlines like BBC news on Twitter directly, rather than having to visit feed readers, the service grew very quickly and became so popular that in 2009, I found seed investment from The Accelerator Group in London and Betaworks in NYC to turn twitterfeed into a business. Twitterfeed was eventually acquired by Bitly, a fellow Betaworks company, in 2011, where I continued to run it on Bitly’s behalf.

Main technologies used: Ruby, Rails, nginx, RabbitMQ, MongoDB, Redis, Memcached, Monit
