TweetLevel – see someones importance (authority) on Twitter

TweetLevel is the kind of application we need with Twitter lists forming and the questions now surrounding them.  How reliable, or seen as an authority, is someone?

TweetLevel looks at a few categories about an individual including Influence, Popularity,  Engagement and Trust.  Each is given a ranking score from 1 to 100.  I like the idea of breaking down the different areas someone might be seen by the community.


what are the numbers?
Each score is rated out of 100 – in other words, the higher your score, the more important you are. There are four result metrics:

* Influence – what you say is interesting and many people listen to it. This is the primary ranking metric.
* Popularity – how many people follow you
* Engagement – you actively participate within your community
* Trust – people believe what you say

I went ahead and used myself as the test victim, as normal.  You can narrow your calculation using some built in drop-down choices about your job and location.  our avatar, score and rating in each category is then displayed.  No need to log in if you have a public stream.  What I did like it is tells you why get the score assigned.  So as not to spoil the surprise, check yourself out and see what it tells you.  Go ahead, you can trust me (according to them)  🙂

The main page shows the top Twitter users by influence, for a quick snapshot of who you should trust.  Interestingly, I wish they had an autmated script that could make a Twitter list out of this so I could follow the list and always have trusted, recent content.  Humorously Chris Brogan is right next to the new York Times.  Good for him!
