I’m happy to announce a new project, called “What’s my Wheaton?“, of which the first version will be released very soon! The past couple of days I’ve been working late to finalize functionality and test every bit of it, new project, called “What’s my Wheaton?”. The essence of the project is to find out what your Wheaton score is.
Now, this probably isn’t common knowledge (yet!), so here’s the definition (source: Wikipedia):
The Wheaton is a measurement of Twitter followers relative to celebrity Wil Wheaton. The measurement was standardized when Wil Wheaton achieved half a million Twitter followers, with the effect that Wil Wheaton now has 3.4 Wheatons himself. As few Twitter users have millions of followers, the milliwheaton (500 followers) is more commonly used.
“So, what’s the plan?” you might wonder. Well, What’s my Wheaton will allow you to quickly calculate your Wheaton score by simply providing your Twitter username. So why not find out what your Wheaton score is, and that of your friends?
The functionality will expand over time, but for now it will remain basic.
The project will be launched in a couple of days, so stay tuned! For more information, check whatsmywheaton.com.
