We are looking for a developer familiar with the Twitter API to find sources to find the most liked, most shared, and most commented on links [websites shared via status updates, wall posts, likes, etc] on Twitter. We want access to the most popular links in the past month and the past year ideally. We are looking for at least 10,000 links, preferably 1,000,000.
We are already aware of GNIP, Datasift, and Topsy. We are looking for lesser known alternative sources of the same type of information, but already ranked based on popularity. We want access to the most popular links on Twitter, not just everything on Twitter.
Note: For the implementation, we prefer developers who know Java or Perl (since that is what we use) and use MySQL. But we are open to alternatives.
Please make your bid and message us with the source you plan on using. It cannot be one of the sources previously mentioned.
