No worries. Fee free to ping me directly if you have any problems with it.

Ok, here's our Success Story blurb:

TweetDeck (http://www.tweetdeck.com) aims to build a browser for the
real-time web. Right now we're the biggest Twitter client after the
website itself, and are rolling out full integration with Facebook and
other services. With TweetDeck you can organize real-time streams of
information into a convenient grid format that allows easy digestion.

We use Twisted to power our backend services, specifically our new
accounts system and sync functionality we introduced recently
(http://tweetdeck.com/beta/features/take-tweetdeck-with-you/). We've
deployed our Twisted services over the Amazon cloud - specifically, we
use EC2 and SimpleDB. Writing a REST api service used by hundreds of
thousands active users was a snap with Twisted. We'll continue to use
Twisted as we broaden our server-side processing goals.
