Klouchebag, A Klout Parody Site That Measures Asshattery


Klouchebag is a parody site of Klout, the site that says it measures your standard of influence based on social media usage. Klouchebag, on the other hand, measures how much of an asshat you are on Twitter. It was created by Tom Scott who “got annoyed with the fuss around Klout.” Klout has the tagline “The Standard for Influence,” but Klouchebag is “The Standard for Asshattery”.

Klouchebag uses the ARSE rating system. Anger: profanity and rage. Retweets: “please RT”s, no or constant retweeting, and old-style. Social Apps: every useless checkin on foursquare or its horrible brethren. And English Usage: if you use EXCLAMATION MARKS OMG!!! or no capitals at all, this’ll be quite high.
