RE: Hello from Twitter!
Yet another LI approach, this one that didn't know who at Twitter was a Hadoop committer and therefore someone I knew/had consumed beer at the Highbury with.
What I will flag up here is Twitter's storage team's plans to build a new data platform from scratch. Not heard of that before.
Hi. I 'm afraid I must decline your invitation. I am having lots of fun at hortonworks building the future of Hadoop, and am not interested in any discussions.
While I am at it, can I point out
these state my reference policy for dealing with unsolicited approaches. A quick scan of the Hadoop committer list would identify who I have worked with at twitter, so who to approach me through more personally.

I lead passive candidate engagement for the core storage team at Twitter. I ran across your profile and I wanted to see if you may be open to a short conversation. The storage team is working on a next generation big data platform we are building from scratch. This will fundamentally change the way we store and analyze data. Would you be available to speak sometime this week?
I look forward to your response.
