My Twitter Bot has more Klout than I do

Do you remember when Klout was popular?  Well, I created an account, but I realized it was another gamification social media site clawing at my attention, so I’ve since left it alone.  But the other day I was going through my WordPress settings, and I noticed I had linked my Klout account to my WordPress account and in a moment of weakness I clicked through.

My TwitterBot (@HangmanBot, the Hangman looking thing to the right of the space invader) is focused, but slipping in its consistency. Hmm, I’ll have to bust out the profiler and see what’s going on…

That’s when I discovered my TwitterBot (@HangmanBot) has more Klout than I do.  In fact, it has half as much Klout as the NYTimes!  I don’t understand how it was less focused then Waffels & Dinges (in the bottom right corner) though.  I mean, all my TwitterBot talks about is Hangman, W&D can’t make up its mind whether to talk about Waffels, Dinges, Waffels or Dinges, or Waffels and Dinges!

How did Twitter decide who was similar to Hang Man?

So, my Bot is more influential than I am.  Somehow I think my Klout score should be the sum of my creations.  Or maybe, I should just go back to not caring about my Klout score.
