The Big Boulder Initiative was founded in 2013 by Gnip, a data provider later acquired by Twitter, to “build the foundation for the long-term success of the social data industry.” The Initiative started with local workshops, but eventually established an annual meet-up of members and leaders in the social data ecosystem.
