Meet the people and companies behind Twenity
Twenity is a joint venture between two exceptional companies from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Design studio IlovarStritar and software development company Neolab first thought of it as a showcase project, demonstrating the possibilities of graphic design and technology, but since then, Twenity has become so much more, and we are very happy about how it's evolving. And since so much hard work was put into the service from all the people involved, it's only fair to give them and the two startups a bit more exposure. Ok, fair enough, a higher Twenity score.
IlovarStritar is a design studio, focused on developing visual identities for companies, brands and events. Until now, they've received multiple awards for their work. Here they are in person:
Neolab is a company specialized in developing software for the most complex of business models. They've also received quite a few awards for their achievements, so they obviously know what they are doing. All thanks to a great team:
These two companies are currently financing Twenity on their own, and a bit of shameless self promotion won't hurt that much. So, if you're looking for awesome services (as you can see in the case of Twenity, our combined effort yields even better results) or just want to talk a bit, don't hesitate to give any of us a shout. Or buy a promoted badge, that could work too. :)
Proud to announce: The Twenity Dashboard
We are very grateful for all the feedback we've received about Twenity on various channels. We were all ears and the results are finally here. As you probably know, Twenity is intended to behave like an adventure on top of you Twitter activity. While this may have been our plan, some players were still having problems: Where is the adventure? What do I have to do here? Well, guess no more - the newly introduced Dashboard solves most of these issues, with style.
The timeline makes Twenity even more social. It allows you to see how people you follow perform on Twenity and when they made their calculations, unlocked badges and went level-up.
Once you start playing Twenity, it's hard to see any new friends that also started the game. The Latest friends module displays the last five people you follow that have registered to Twenity.
The advanced profile
The Dashboard displays your profile with a bit more data than it's available on the general profile page. We wanted to show you more - how many calculations you've made, how many badges you've unlocked in total, and how many #twenity tweets you've sent to the world.
Challenges 1: badges
Twenity allows you to unlock badges and go through different levels. While you can always browse other people's profiles to see what you have to do for the next badge, we've decided to make it a bit easier. The Challenges module displays the next 5 badges we think are the easiest for you to unlock, helping you conquer the world of Twitter (and Twenity).
Challenges 2: proximity battles
The are people you know who scored similar than you did on Twenity, some of them better, some of them worst. We know what you want to do with them – beat those in front of you, and run away from those behind you. Two of each are shown here, more are available on your profile leaderboard (friends – proximity). So you always know who you're competing against.
Challenges 3: additional
Besides the main challenges, Twenity will be giving players some additional badges. The first group of these badges has been available since our launch, the promoted badges for following accounts on Twitter. Since these have become quite popular, we wanted to make sure you don't miss them.
There are a few other things coming up on the Dashboard, which we'll be publishing as we go along, but we had to start somewhere. Thank you again, because of your interest and feedback, Twenity is evolving at a really fast pace, and we hope you like the newest updates as much as we do.
Our representative is traveling to San Francisco. Anybody up for a drink?
It's been a little over two months since we've launched Twenity. That translates into almost 1.000 players, but it's time to raise the stakes. Our representative Grega Stritar will be going to San Francisco tomorrow, where the real magic happens. Silicon Valley is the final destination for most services such as Twenity, and we have to see for ourselves, what can be done.
If you are interested in finding out more about Twenity or just looking for a casual talk, feel free to contact him. He will be more than happy to answer all your questions about Twenity and Slovenia or just spend some quality time, between March 1st and March 15th. You can reach him on Twitter or send him a direct email.
Wish us luck. :)
