Word of the Week: Twitter Grader

By Word of the Week on May 21st, 2010

Twitter Grader: We have discussed many ways to monitor how Twitter activity is spread and what impact it can have. But how does all of this reflects upon the user, and how does the average tweeter stack up against his peers? Twitter Grader uses a combination of traits to apply a grade of 1-100 to any Twitter user. Factors such as number of followers, strength of followers, update frequency and amount of retweets are used to create a score, which is then compared to other Twitter users. That is, a user with a grade of 85 has a higher score than 85 percent of the users who have been graded.
