lindawadman | Twitter Grader

The Twitter Grade at Twitter Grader measures the reach and authority of a Twitter user. Simply enter your Twitter username, click the "get grade" button and wait while your grade is generated. Your rank is calculated as a percentile score. A grade of means that @ scores higher than percent of the users that have been graded.

* The number of followers you have
* The power of this network of followers
* The pace of your updates
* The completeness of your profile
* ...a few others

The results give your overall rank, number of followers, number following, and number of updates. You can share this with your friends via a selection of services, social networking sites, posting it to social media sites or your blog, e-mailing or by tweeting it to Twitter.

It also generates a tweet cloud based on terms you used in your tweets. You can check a name to see if they are following you, download a social media kit, and follow Twitter Grader on Twitter.

In addition, you can look at who the Twitter Elite are (one way to find those who you mght want to follow), search by keyword, name, or e-mail address, or generate a badge to show of your Twitter Grade. Also, you can install a bookmarklet for Twitsnip in your browser. TwitSnip is a simple tool for easily posting to Twitter. It lets you "quote" text on any web page. It does nifty things like looking up the @user for the website and linking back to the source. It shortens the URL too. It even tries to shorten the length of the tweet (when needed) using a twitabulary of short words. For FireFox/Safari/Chrome just Drag-drop the TwitSnip link into your bookmarks. For Internet Explorer, right click and add it to your favorites. To use the bookmarklet browse around to some web page. Highlight/select some portion of text (as if you were going to copy it). Invoke the TwitSnip bookmarklet by choosing it. Review your tweet and post it.

My Twitter Grade Badge is below.
