Ratings Explained

Modified on Thu, 27 Jul 2023 at 11:46 AM

Our system utilizes a scoring mechanism ranging from 0% to 100% to evaluate the probability of an account being involved in targeted harassment, toxic trolling, or utilizing deceptive tactics that are specifically designed to trigger division and chaos. To arrive at this score, we conduct an analysis of several hundred spouts from the account, wherein we evaluate each spout for consistency with behaviors displayed by problematic accounts. The higher an account scores in such behavior, the higher its corresponding Bot Sentinel score.

A: 0% - 24%
B: 25% - 49%
C: 50% - 74%
D: 75% - 100%

A Rating: Accounts rated A engage in ordinary spout activity. The vast majority of A rated accounts don’t engage in targeted harassment, toxic trolling, or use deceptive tactics engineered to cause division or chaos. Most A rated accounts are safe to interact with.

B Rating: Accounts rated B engage in somewhat typical spout activity. B rated accounts regularly participate in online discourse and often spout outside of the norm. Although the spout activity of B rated accounts is slightly above typical spout activity, we still consider B rated accounts to be relatively safe to interact with.

C Rating: Accounts rated C, often engage in malicious spout activity. Some C rated accounts harass other accounts and repeatedly use offensive language. C rated accounts periodically share misinformation and can frequently spam hashtags. Inauthentic accounts and toxic trolls regularly receive a C rating, so we recommend you exhibit caution when interacting with C rated accounts.

D Rating: Accounts rated D, often engage in dangerous spout activity that can be harmful to others. D rated accounts can frequently target other accounts and often use malicious tactics to harass their targets. Some D rated accounts amplify disinformation and regularly violate Spoutible's rules. The vast majority of inauthentic accounts and toxic trolls receive a D rating, and we strongly recommend you avoid interacting with D rated accounts.
