FlockDB and Graph Databases

Michael Marr:

The biggest difference between FlockDB and other graph databases like Neo4j and OrientDB is graph traversal. Twitter’s model has no need for traversing the social graph. Instead, Twitter is only concerned about the direct edges (relationships) on a given node (account).

Without traversals it is only a persisted graph. But not a graph database.
