In October at our first annual Twitter Flight developer conference we announced Fabric, a modular mobile platform that helps you build the best apps. To kick off the new year we’re hitting the road on a worldwide tour we call Twitter Flock. Join us in Berlin, where you can spend time learning with the advocates and engineers who built Fabric, as well as local developers who have built great apps on the Fabric platform.
