What's your Klouchebag score? Your Klout score while you're at it...?

Klout and Klouchebag are two polar opposite social networking yard sticks.

First came Klout http://Klout.com then in full reactionary form came Klouchebag:
http://Klouchebag.com


My Klouchebag score is 31. Nothing to be proud about where the lower the score the better. Scores of 50 or higher indicate that as a Twitter user, you are a kind of tool for douchejerkery and bad grammar.

Apparently my crime is retweeting too much.

@tsarstepan,
Well, I must have a score of zero, as I didn't even know what to do on the first page, and I have no idea what retweet or any of the other jargon or whatever it is meant.

Is the past tense of tweet a twat?

Otherwise sane people actually tweet??

Like chai, I have no clue what any of this is all about. I have a Facebook acc't which I visit only rarely -- usually at someone's invitation via e-mail. That's it. I'm an A2k-er first, last & prolly always.

@chai2,
Twote, maybe? Either one would be a huge time (and character) saver over "tweeted".

@tsarstepan,
I hate twitter, almost never use it. I had to guess what to put in at the @, finally figured it out.

It says I'm an "8", which probably means "I hate twitter".

@tsarstepan,
On Klout it says I'm an "observer", probably a more polite term for "lurker".

My influence on FaceBook would probably be greater if I didn't spend a majority of my "social media" time "influencing" A2K instead of FaceBook.

For a lot of the "old timers" here, A2K is probably our Social Media world, rather than FaceBook. I never thought of A2K as a competitor to FaceBook, but it probably is in some ways. What would be interesting would be to see a "Klout"-like function run against our A2K activity.

@thack45,
I found I needed a cell phone. Then I sorta LIKED the smart phone. Now I find that all these social media are , to me, a useless service when I mostly wanna be left the **** ALONE.

Is there a social media for hermits?

@farmerman,
I'm a 25 ("mostly all right") - I get it a little for English abuse, but that happens when trying to fit into the character limit.

@farmerman,
Yes. And Klouchebag wrote my score as "Mostly Alright". Yeah. That's mostly actual, orthographically correct English.

I had FB app on my phones prior to the one I have now. Consequently I never check my account anymore. But FB is sure to send me emails letting me know that I'm missing out. I feel so important.

Affirmative. It's called a web forum...
