You may have come across Twitter sites that grade Twitter profiles for their value, such as TwitterValue, which gives users the value of their account based on followers, RTs and more.
Grader.com provides a rank and grade for twits at twitter.grader.com. The site uses an algorithm that ranks twits and provides them with a grade. The algorithm is based on various factors like followers, updates, recency of updates and more. You can also view ranks by location.
