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.
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!
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.
