Tumblr chose the 2013 Billboard Music Awards as the basis for their first live TV integration. Creative agency Deckhouse Digital was hired for the event, designing an innovative live-gif system which allowed them to produce animated GIFs during the broadcast, and post them directly to Billboard's tumblr page in real time. Users of the blogging site were able to view and share animated images of events unfolding on stage just minutes after watching them live on ABC.
