Blog: Chris MercerAre you a Twitter "redunce"?

Chris Mercer | 11 December 2009

Are you wasting your time and repeatedly trying the patience of friends and colleagues by tweeting useless information on Twitter?

Find out before you end up spending Christmas alone with a sabotaged internet connection.

just-drinks has discovered a web tool named Redunce, which calculates how annoying you are on Twitter by counting the number of times you have 're-tweeted' information.

Mercifully, "just_drinks is not a redunce", we have found.

The formula used to calculate this is confidential, the Redunce site says.

"Excessive retweeting ruins it for everyone," it says, adding menacingly: "You know who you are."

Sadly, it seems Redunce is not able to expose people who feel compelled to inform the world about the temperature of their shower in the morning. You know who you are, too.
