[Twitter Apps] Twitter Ratio and Doesfollow

I’ve recently discovered some more great Twitter apps for your entertainment (and my own).

Twitter Friend-Follower Ratio

First I have Twitter Ratio. Twitter Ratio is petty self-explanatory. You just hand over your Twitter credentials to the service and out pops your twitter ratio. What’s a Twitter Ratio? It’s the ratio of your followers and followings (people who follow you), which are used to determine how noisy, wonderful, or useless you might be on Twitter. The app uses the TFF Ratio method developed by Dave Donaldson. You can read more about his methods twitter ratio methods here.

Twitter Friend-Follower Ratio Scale

Here’s how the TFF scale works:

    • A ratio of less than 1.0 indicates that you are seeking knowledge (and Twitter Friends), but not getting much Twitter Love in return.
    • A ratio of around 1.0 means you are respected among your peers. Either that or you follow your Mom and she follows you.
    • A ratio of 2.0 or above shows that you are a popular person and people want to hear what you have to say. You might be a thought leader in your community.
    • A TFF Ratio 10 or higher indicates that you’re either a Rock Star in your field or you are an elitist and you cannot be bothered by Twitter’s mindless chatter. You like to hear yourself talk. Luckily others like to hear you talk, too. You may be an ass.
    • My Results

      Yesterday they told me I was a genius. Today:


    I’d rather be a leader among everyone and I prefer genius thank you.

      I like this a lot better than what Louis Gray gave me here. Apparently Louis hasn’t realized how important I can be on Twitter too. It’s ok Louis :D.



      If you’re in love with Twitter Karma like I am, Doesfollow is a simpler way to find out if someone is following you. Just enter in your twitter name and the twitter name of the person you’d like to follow and Doesfollow checks Twitter to see if it’s true. I thought I’d check to see if Duncan Riley is following me.


      and I got a big fat:
