Hacking the Twitter API to catalog user voted videos
When Vine launched there was no way to view the best videos and no means of pulling them into an interface outside of the app itself. The team there has since built there own first party API for exploring the best content, but before that launched I partnered up with Angel Samano to not only take a crack at writing one but make it into its own game.
Under the direction of Tether Labs & lots of 16-bit illustration hours later, we had a working prototype for the collection, voting, ranking and sharing of the best Vines. Sometimes the best work never sees the light of the public, but sometimes it's worth the trouble to give life to new tools.
