How Much is Your Twitter Account Worth?

Something fun today:


I stumbled upon a site today, that claimed to appraise your Twitter account.  Needless to say, I had to check it out.

I was actually surprised to find that my Twitter account (@youngmanbrown) was actually "worth" more than a dollar:


Of course, the numbers are most likely skewed.  I doubt that the formula takes into account how many of your followers actively follow you on Twitter.  I know some people out there who have actually purchased followers -- dead accounts that are merely there to add numbers.

It is much harder to track how many of your followers are active on Twitter on a daily basis to actually see your tweets.  And even harder, still, to track how many of those followers trust your taste and judgement enough to click links that you might share.  Those are the followers that actually make your Twitter account worth something.

Not only that, but I am fairly certain that Twitter won't let you sell your account anyway.

But it is still fun to see.

And brag.

How much is your Twitter account "worth?"  Find out.

    1. I keep getting an error message that says the site can't find my profile. I think that means I'm right.

  4. I don't want to know. It would be too depressing. I hardly ever think of anything good to tweet.

    Love,

  14. It keeps telling me it can't find mine. That's alright. I am not looking to sell anyway.

  15. I'm not on Twitter but, if I was, my curiosity would (like you) demand that I find out how much I'm worth. I would then suffer the crushing news that my value is 0!
