    Actually, I rather agree with you. I’m not unhappy to top the H&K list, of course, but I think Klout scores are a very poor metric of influence. It would be more telling to look at things like retweets and responses to measure engagement and influence. I never look at my Klout number – I’m far more interested in tracking how many people respond to what I post on Twitter.

      Thanks for responding Paula, Klout’s business motives have degraded the validity of their system.  Unfortunate because it would be nice to have a reputable system that captured the type of feedback and engagement you refer to.  Although Klout claims to keep track of twitter activity, not knowing their algorithm means we don’t know how they are interpreting the data and the weight assigned.
