Twitter's Flight developer conference returns on October 21

Twitter just announced its second annual Twitter Flight developer conference set for October 21st in San Francisco. Like every other conference of this nature, the event is meant to reach out to devs and get them up to speed on the company's developer-focused products. Unlike other tech firms, this year's shindig will be Twitter's first big event with a yet-to-be-named CEO and/or Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey taking the stage to share the social network's news. The event will focus on the company's mobile platform Fabric, its APIs for third parties and Gnip its enterprise platform. Of course with new(ish) leadership there's also the chance that the company will use the opportunity to announce more consumer-facing products and changes to Twitter itself.
