        What is Tornado?

        By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.

        What is Tower Web?

        Tower Web aims to decouple all HTTP concepts from the application logic. You define a "plain old Rust method" (PORM?). This method takes only the data it needs to complete and returns a struct representing the response. Tower Web does the rest.

        What is Twisted?

        Twisted is an event-driven networking engine written in Python and licensed under the open source ​MIT license. Twisted runs on Python 2 and an ever growing subset also works with Python 3. Twisted also supports many common network protocols, including SMTP, POP3, IMAP, SSHv2, and DNS.
