NoSQL in the Twitter world

NoSQL solutions have one thing in common. They are generally designed for horizontal scalability.

Will have to look into it. [ Update: Sinatra is not a DB store ] Floxee uses MongoDB Twidoop uses Hadoop Swordfish built on top of Tokyo Cabinet comes with a twitter clone app with it. Tweetarium uses Tokyo Cabinet References NoSQL Twitter Applications More NoSQL Twitter apps Do you know of any more ?
