Twitter opening data center in Salt Lake City

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Twitter says it will open a new data operations center in Salt Lake City. Company engineering program chief Jean-Paul Cozzatti posted a message Wednesday announcing the San Francisco-based social networking site would move technical operations to Utah. Cozzatti says the goal is greater reliability and capacity for a rapidly growing user base. Twitter spokesman Matt Graves tells the Deseret News the Salt Lake City center will be Twitter’s first custom facility. Graves says the plan is to open other custom data centers during the next two years. Twitter has been beset in recent months by computer-capacity issues. The social network enables people to share information with followers in “tweets” or messages limited to 140 characters.
