What’s your Twitter grade?

15Jul09

Well, it was inevitable. If PageRank could be important for Web 1.0, then Twitter Grader (and Facebook Grader) would be important for Web 2.0.  Now there is a tool to check your score.

TWITTER.grader.com uses a proprietary algorithm to score and rank Twitter accounts on six weighted factors listed below:

  1. Number of followers: a non-discriminating count of how many followers you have (higher is better).
  2. Ranking of followers: the grades of those who follow you (higher is better).
  3. Number of Updates: within reason (more is better). Don’t be a spammer!
  4. Recency of Updates: if your last tweet is recent, then you’re doing good here.
  5. Follower/Following Ratio: this factor is more important in the early stages (higher is better). This becomes less important as your followers and engagement levels increase over time.
  6. Engagement Level: references and retweets from other users, combined with the ranking of those users.

Check out your Facebook Grader too.
