There’s always plenty of lively discussion in the social media world about Klout. Some think it’s great; some think it’s the devil incarnate.
If you’re tired of the Klout Wars, how about a really useful influence metric? If there’s one kind of person we all want to avoid, it’s the douchebag. Now there’s a new service to warn us who douches it up on Twitter…or if you ought to have a long, hard look in the mirror before that next tweet.
Just enter any Twiter handle and Klouchebag will give you a score, based on the ARSE system: Anger: profanity and rage. Retweets: “please RT”s, no or constant retweeting, and old-style. Social Apps: every useless checkin on foursquare or its horrible brethren. And English Usage: if you use EXCLAMATION MARKS OMG!!! or no capitals at all, this’ll be quite high.
