...but you probably took my comment "and the inevitable(?) RDBMS" as
meaning that the architecture should be database-centric - actually
that's not what it meant -- as I described previously the RDBMS does
have a place for user accounts (not for the tweet storage). The
"inevitability" part was referring to the fact that pretty much any
(not all!) large-scale architecture will "need" an RDBMS "somewhere".
