Hi, I want to find out how exactly Twitter works technically. I am a utterly non-technical person (read social scientist). How is Twitter built up technically, which layers, which programming languages are at play? Also what algorithms are used by Twitter? I hope this is not too trival for you guys, but it is crucial for me to dig beyond the interface to start "understanding" Twitter. Thanks!!
