When you think about GitHub, you probably think about code and nothing else. Twitter, which is built on open source software, launched a new GitHub page today that is pretty appealing to the eye.
The page contains links to its 57 public repositories and also serves as a billboard for recruiting, sporting the famous “Join the Flock” slogan and link to its job site.
While Twitter has been a part of the GitHub community since its inception, engineers at the company seem to be pretty stoked about its new landing page:
A shoutout to @maccman @mjackson for creating an awesome landing page for all of Twitter’s open source projects: twitter.github.com

We’re sure that the company hopes that the new look appeals to developers who are looking for gigs, as the company is currently hiring over 30 engineering positions alone.
Oh and here’s a bonus, if you click this special link, Twitter’s GitHub page gets animated. I won’t ruin it for you with a screenshot, go have a look.
