In 2011 Uberlink Corporation and Connected Action engaged in a joint venture, prototyping gamification of Twitter user behavior, called “Netbadges”. Responsibilities included development of the free Twitter API connection and data storage, back-end programming in python and PHP, and front-end development.

Although ultimately infeasible, it was insightful to work toward an understanding of how to incorporate social media behavior into a near-real-time ranking and gamification environment.
