As long as the API is open and the social media ecosystem is a
competitive landscape, there *will* be people developing both open and
"closed" popularity and other tweet and tweeter ranking scores. And
they'll all give different but similar scores / rankings. And there
be spammers trying to game them, whether they are open or closed. So -
