How Stupid Are Your Twitter Followers? Find Out
This Stupid Fight screenshot shows that Justin Bieber's fans are stupider than Lady Gaga's--but both crowds are "dumb as a bag of hammers."

Do you love Twitter, celebrities, or making fun of people? Than Mashable has found an excellent timekiller for you in the form of Stupid Fight, a new site from comedian Tom Scott that allows you to pit the followers of any two celebrities against each other, to see which fans are dumber. It simply scans the last 100 @ replies to that person and looks for tell-tale stupidity indicators—like excessive exclamation points, capitalization, or the use of the abbreviation “OMG.”

The site says it’s a tool for ranking celebrities, but it’ll work with any two usernames, so feel free to IQ test your own fans. One word of caution: the results aren’t good for long. New tweets are coming in every second, so the same battle run twice in a row could get different results. (More Twitter stories.)
