Twitter Bootstrap was founded by two former Twitter software engineers, Mark Otto and Jacob Thornton, as a front end for web development, with templates for forms, buttons, and other user interface items. Twitter Bootstrap was open sourced in August 2011. NetDNA (formerly MaxCDN, acquired by StackPath) launched BootstrapCDN, the free content delivery network aspect of Bootstrap, with a beta launch on June 7, 2012 and a stable launch on July 5, 2012. (Otto and Thornton did not develop BootstrapCDN.) Stanford University, Angry Birds and Gizmodo utilize BootstrapCDN.
Font Awesome, a font designed for use with Twitter Bootstrap, was incorporated into BootstrapCDN on August 21, 2012. The font offers CSS-friendly scalable vector icons that are CSS-friendly for customization.
As of July 5, 2013—a year after it launched—BootstrapCDN transferred 40.73 Terabytes and served 3.2 billion requests, with 383 changes to its Github repository (git commits). Font Awesome was its most popular requested file with 338,329,273 hits.
