Klouchebag>Klout. I said it.

As posted on the baller Jacob Tyler Creative Blog

I happened upon this entertaining Tom Scott website on this fine Friday and thought I’d share it with you all. It’s called Klouchebag and it mocks Klout while measuring your ‘Asshattery’. Yes, I said ‘Asshattery’ – he sounds like he’s from London.

According to Mashable, ‘Klouchebag judges your tweets based on four criteria: 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”).

The 0 to 100 scale is modeled after Klout so the lower your score, the less of an ‘asshat’ or ‘douchebag’ you are.

Scott apologizes to all you high scoring tools out there by saying, “Sorry. 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. You’re probably a lovely person. Although you might want to cut down on the swearing a bit.”

To give you a sense of where you might fall on the scale, take a look at the following personalities:

Pretty funny that Scott himself is one of the two people to have a 100 Klouchebag score. Who is the other, you ask? Piers Morgan.

He also responded to me on Twitter… which makes me famous.

Crap. I’m kind of a douche.

…but Jake is even worse… than Biebs.
