Twitter Finger

I saw's finger service and it looked awesome, but there was no source code so I figured I'd write one while sitting around.

I did this in twisted because it was way easy and figured there was a need for a thousand or so concurrent finger requests to be handled at any given point in time.


Getting Ready:

git clone git://
cd twitter-finger
git submodule init
git submodule update


Any sort of variant that makes sense for your deployment with twistd. A quick interactive example:

twistd -ny finger.tac
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
