What’s Your Klouchebag Score?

Designer Tom Scott has created Klouchebag, a Twitter app mocking the Internet’s obsession over Klout scores.

Check it out: ” Don’t take it personally. This is about as scientific as Klout’s own measurements — which is to say, it’s pretty much a crapshoot … Klouchebag uses the ARSE rating 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.”

Below, we’ve found the scores for some of our favorite Twitter pages. What’s your Klouchebag score?

1. Evil Wylie Klouchebag Score: 43 Quite Noisy

2. Drunk Hulk Klouchebag Score: 1 Nice

3. GalleyCat Klouchebag Score: 26 Mostly Alright

4. Christian Grey (star of Fifty Shades of Grey) Klouchebag Score: 40 Quite Noisy
