Meet DERP, the data API

Here's something I'd like to read from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest - access to their data for universities through a public API to help understand dynamics of social networking better. In this case, Reddit, Imgur and Twitch team up to do exactly this (twitch drew some attention in the past days with fish playing Street Fighter, just look a few posts below). And the nature of these platforms also explains the derp-name .-)
