Well it seems 20.000 people now follow twittergrader. The site that gives you your twitter grade out of 100. It seems we never outgrow our schooldays and still long to be graded, and then to display those grades in public. But what does it mean? Is it actually a measure of success? Well I've always had a high twitter grade close to 100. In fact my twitter grade has gone up another .10 since the webphoto above and is now 99.5. This could be due to the fact that I've managed to build a following of 1,060 in just a few months of active tweeting and the number of replies I receive.Two months work really. But I do engage. Im told there are people that get perfect 100s. Im not sure how that's possible or even legal, but it happens. I walk the talk, the wisequeen advice we gave here on how to build a social media empire. I believe in this form of communication called social media, use it on facebook twitter and linkedin and xing, and I write on it. I'm always surprised by people who say they are passionate about, or love working with social media, but follow 24 people have 20 following and 17 updates in the year they have been on Twitter. I always want to ask them. So what do you love about social media then? The idea? The name? I don't think twittergrading should be taken too seriously no. I don't think any tool is more than a tool. It's a bit of fun like most tools. What do you think? What is your grade? How seriously do you take it? Share your ideas in a comment here. Wisequeen Donna Jackson Social Communications Specialist.
