Aid Watch Curse

Last Thursday, an Aid Watch post had some fun with Twitter analytic Klout.  I was slightly ahead of Bill Easterly and concluded that I deserved a book deal.  However, I noticed something last night:

A few days after the post, my score saw an inexplicable drop.  The only reasonable truth is that I have been back-stabbed by Aid Watch as they wrote the post in order to poison my Klout score and move ahead of me!

Note: Klout altered their algorithm on the 15th and the drop is due to the switch.  Easterly should have more klout being that he is much smarter than I.  However, it is much more fun to draw conclusions that blame others.
