Klout gives you a score based on your social reputation from aggregating your data on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. The perceived importance of having a high Klout score has some people posting too frequently on social networks and generating unnecessary noise. The new social aggregator Klouchebag can calculate just how voluble someone is from their Twitter activities.

Once you submit a username on Klouchebag, its uses the ‘ARSE’ rating system to measure how ‘douchey’ that person is. ‘ARSE’ as explained by the creator Tom Scott as standing for:

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.

So if you’re concerned with your Klout score, you might also want to check your Klouchebag score to make sure that you’re not pestering your followers while trying to become more socially influential.
