Measuring Twitter User Value

Friday, 27 February 2009 at 3:00 am Pacific USA Time.

The MrTweet service will recommend other Twitter users to you. It now also "grades" you. As I'm writing this, it rates me as follows:

  • 18 Tweets per day
  • 65% Conversation (and says I'm "very engaging")
  • 18% Links (and says I'm "good connector")

Twitter Grader ranks me…

  •  #17,862 out of over 1.3 million Twitter users
  • That puts me in the top 1.4% of all Twitter users, which I think is good! :)
  • 98.7 out of 100. They say this score is calculated based on how many followers I have, the power of this network of followers (not sure what that means!), the pace of your updates, and the completeness of your profile (not sure about that either!).

65% conversation for me seems about right, and what I'm shooting for. Sometimes, I look at people who follow me, and the first 2-3 pages of their tweets are all @ somebody. I often don't follow that person since I'm hoping that my Twitter pals ("tweeple" :) ) are going to say and offer interesting things.

So a higher conversation % doesn't make me more likely to follow you. Interacting with me is nice, but I'd rather you had some original thoughts you were putting out there, and not just instant message style discussions.

Want to follow my world? I use 4 Twitter accounts.

Other than that, I can only say I'm "very engaging" and a "good connector." :)
