Marketing Agency CEO Gets a High Klout Score; Puts Out a Press Release [Updated]

by Joey deVilla on September 27, 2013

The headline reads like an Onion article, but it’s true: Anchor Communications’ CEO got a Klout score of 68 and decided to put out a press release saying “Hey! I’m a social media guru, ’cause I’ve got a great Klout score!”:

tj kirgin gets 68 klout score

Before you know it, he’ll be posting press releases for every little thing:

didn't fall asleep at meeting

5 jaegerbombs

i pooped today

If that’s all it takes to merit a press release, maybe I should put one out too:

Update

The Next Web have discovered the press release and are having their own fun with it.

Oh shit, that’s MY Klout score! Call CNN. No seriously, call CNN – I bet they’ll report on it.

Corina – forget CNN, let’s get you on Oprah. My daughter’s awaiting the call from your people!!

Hilarious. I am getting pretty close to completing Plants vs. Zombies 2 and may issue a press release when that occurs. Contact me if you’re interested in an embargoed advance 😉
