What behind HUBS.twtlr.com?
HUBS.twtlr.com runs on Appengine of Google. But instead of Webapp I used Tornado as low level framework running in WSGI mode. Above Tornado I have a selfmade high level framework which supports pluggable extensions and in this small project used for templating(Jinja2) and caching. This framework will be opensourced. And specially thanks for the great API of topsy.com.
