Sam | Klout Influence Report
My Klout score tends to waver between 52 and 57. Today is a high day for me, yay.
So you’re probably wondering by now, ‘Who gives a fuck?’
Companies do, and they’re offering people with big klout scores (like my friend @bentoboxx) cool things, like a free round trip flight to and from Toronto. I myself got an invite to a Hard Rock Cafe event (though apparently, it was free to the public anyway, but I did get a personal invite which was cool).

So who knows what’s on the horizon, Klout shows what topics you’re influential about, and by how much. If you plan your tweets right, you could be influential about something like chocolate and maybe rep the rewards of free bars of sugary deliciousness, or find your self in the position to test drive a new car, by becoming the most influential car tweeter… who knows.

Klout VS Spam

I’ve noticed of recent an increase in the amount of spam tweets that are directed at me, and it’s peaked my hypotheticals.

Klout monitors @ replies to your own tweets (as well as retweets, likes and comments) and it’s got me wondering, could you simply in crease your Klout my tweeting with keywords marketed toward spambots on twitter. Does klout take in to account who is tweeting at you (which I do believe it does)?

Case in point I tweeted this earlier, and within 2 minutes received a spambot reply.

twitter spam case in point

Not that I condone the deliberate tweeting of thoughts to simply encourage spammers to reply, but I think the increase in spambot’s replying to your tweets is an implication that you’re doing it right (unless you’re deliberately tweeting just buss words).

Spammers know very well, who and what they’re selling and in a way, so should you.

Know what Topics you want to be influential about and as the old expression goes “tweet your heart out, kid.”

or is it “Let them Tweet cake”?
