How much “Klout” do you have on Twitter?

This week’s Tech Tip Tuesday pick is of lighter kind:  a web-based called “Klout” which bills itself as the “standard for influence” primarily covering Twitter.  Klout takes your Twitter username and uses a variety of measures to determine your Klout “score”, your “true reach” as well as several other things.  The scores range from 1 to 100 with higher scores representing a wider and stronger sphere of influence.  Klout also uses over 35 variables on Facebook and Twitter to measure True Reach, Amplification Probability, and Network Score.

Like any service that claims to be a “standard” on Twitter, there is some room for debate.  However, Klout is interesting because it backs up its claim with solid formula.  Here is my Klout score:  Screen shot 2010-10-24 at 9.57.06 PM

What is your Klout score?

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
