If you were wondering what the heck #ktrain is, it’s a social experiment, born inside the Facebook Group Indigeni Digitali to test and reverse engineer social Indexes scoring algorithms (k stands for Klout, the most famous of such indexes).
Since early this morning dozens of tweeters are retweeting and broadcasting the #ktrain hashtag and checking the results on klout.com.
The rules are simple:
- tweet something (anything!) using the hashtag #ktrain
- reply and retweet tweets with the #ktrain hashtag
- rinse and repeat
- check out on klout what happens to your social score
Bonus: get to know the community behind all this buzz
Here a sample of such actions
At this point you may be wondering why are we doing this.
We are experimenting to see all the added effects of thousands of tweets on Klout and at which point they will start to change (if any).
We are having fun with this nonsense, it’s like a party with free beer!
