You Rock! Badge


Inaugural BadgeBot badge! Earners of this badge are being recognized for being awesome.

Every day we meet people who make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. Let these folks know that they rocked your world.

Special thanks to for their longstanding support of the Open Badges Community, and inspiring BadgeBot and this badge.


Send a tweet to @badgebotio from your twitter account. Include #yourockbadge (within the first 140 characters), the @username you intend to recognize, and the message explaining why you are recognizing them in your tweet.

The BadgeBot will review your tweet. If it finds the hashtag and the username in the tweet, it will issue the badge and tweet it to the @username. You will be included in this tweet and should get a notification on twitter.

The tweet sent to @username will include the badge image and a link to where they can view their badge and its details.

Example Tweet:
@badgebotio Please issue a #yourockbadge to @allysonfelix for her hard work and perserverance. Congratulations! You rock!!
Optional: Include a gif, photo or video.
Hashtag: #yourockbadge
Evidence: Link to your tweet to @badgebotio.


Question: Who can I issue this badge to?
Answer: Any Twitter user.

Question: Can I issue one to myself?
Answer: Sure! Self-love and recognition is important!

Question: Can I issue one to more than one user at a time?
Answer: Unfortunately, not right now. Please send one tweet per username.

Question: What if I forget the hashtag?
Answer: Then BadgeBot won't know what badge you intend to send. Please send your tweet again.

Question: What if I forget the message about the @username?
Answer: The BadgeBot will still issue the badge and send the tweet.

Question: What if the tweet is not responded to by Badgebot?
Answer: Please send a DM to @badgebotio with a link to the tweet. Badgebot is a prototype and working with the twitter api can sometimes be tricky & limiting.

Question: Are these badges public or private?
Answer: These are all public tweets so the badges are public too.

Question: What if I don't want this badge?
Answer: BadgeBot will tweet you a link for your badge. On the top right of that page, there are instructions explaining how to delete your badge by sending a tweet.
