Hadoop and Pig at Twitter

Related to the previous post on how Hadoop is used at Facebook, there is an interesting slide deck on how Twitter is using Hadoop and Pig. Take a look.

The video of the original talk is available at Yahoo!. Very impressive to see the much less code you have to write in Pig when compared to the native Java MapReduce jobs (around 20:00).
