As a follow-up to our earlier post “50+ Rubyists to Follow on Twitter” we used Twitter Grader to find out the top 5 ranked Rubyists.
But What’s Twitter Grader?
Twitter Grader ranks your Twitter profile up against other users of Twitter, based on things like number of followers, the power of your follower network, how often you update, and your profile bio. It gives you two numbers: your overall rank and your percentage out of 100. It is a fun tool for Twitter users.

Being a bit of a Twitter Egomaniac, I graded myself too:
Grade: 99.8 and Rank: 2,694 out of 1,461,068
