Klouchebag is the anti-Klout: measures asshattery on Twitter
“I got annoyed with the fuss around Klout, the horrible social-game that assigns you a score based on how ‘influential’ you are online. This is the result,” explains Tom Scott, the developer of marvellous website Klouchebag.
Claiming to be “the standard for measuring asshattery online”, it assigns Twitter users a rating between 1 and 100 based on an ‘ARSE’ rating system: anger, retweets, social apps (e.g. Foursquare check-ins) and English usage (abuse of punctuation and grammar).
People are already merrily tweeting their results. CNN host Piers Morgan appears to be top douchedog too, with a maximum rating of 100. Expect this to be a craze by the time Silicon Valley wakes up today…
