In a sign that maybe the Vatican doesn't really understand this newfangled Twitter thing, they've announced that the Pope is beating Justin Bieber in the only category that counts: Retweets. If you're wondering how that statement can be true, don't bother, because it isn't. Don't worry, Pope, we're sure you're still beating Bieber in most giant hats. Probably.
If you're in an industry where social media matters (read: suddenly all of them) you may know about a thing called Klout. Using a series of, some might argue arbitrary, formulas and black magic, Klout assigns you a number that tells you exactly how important you are in your social networks. Klouchebag is its evil twin from a dark, sarcastic parallel universe. Klouchebag will assign you a number carefully calculated to tell you how much of an "asshat" you are. Its words, not mine. As you can see above, I am a bit of a prat. It's up to you to decide which score, on the whole, is worth more, or less.
In this day and age, it's pretty much a given that you should be keeping your social networking life somewhat under control because schools and prospective employers might be looking at it. But that's not all, banks and creditors seem to be creeping in that direction too, because why let a little free information go to waste? As it turns out, there are plenty of things that creditors might like to know about you that, legally, they can't ask, things like your race, your marital status, and whether or not you're receiving public assistance. Also, having deadbeat friends who are yapping on about their inability to afford weed on their completely public profile probably wouldn't help your case either.
