Today I stumbled upon this tool on the Stockholm Pride 2009 website. It measures how hetero you are based on the words that you tweet! Is it accurate? Not really … but it’s fun! I’ve polled a bunch of the people that I follow. Here they are in descending order:
Topping the list is CockyAndRude, the twitter account of this blog. Apparently we don’t use enough cliché terms to be considered even 1% hetero. Next up is me, who is apparently super-duper 84% hetro because I use terms like “boom boom” and “ikea”. Next on the list is Neil Patrick Harris who uses terms like “milk” and rad” and is clearly straight as well, since his tweets track at 72% hetero. Next on the list is Craig from Puntabulous. He’s 66% hetero, since he uses terms such as “bunny,” “booth,” and “circle jerk.” At 54% and 51% are Josh from Josh Is Trashy and Enrico from Hotel Tuesday, thanks to terms like “asbury park” and “rent” … how half-hetero! At only 40% hetero is Mikey, because he uses terms such as “gala” and “bukkake.” And finally, bottoming my list is Conan O’Brien, for using the term “sugar” — it seems that that makes you only 1% hetero.
How hetero are you?
