Are you a giver or a taker? Find out with your Twitter account!

Ever wondered just how selfish you really are? A new website has been launched which assesses whether you are a ‘giver’ or a ‘taker’, based on your Twitter activity.

Fundraising platform, Give as you Live launched the quirky site to assess visitors’ social ‘giver’ or ‘taker’ status, taking into account a number of selfishness indicators evident in Twitter usage, such as the percentage of retweets and mutual follows. The site generates a score and will also highlight to users the most prolific ‘givers’ and ‘takers’ of the A-list world.

Head of Communications at Give as you Live, Steff Lewis said: “The truth is out! From Kim Kardashian to Simon Cowell, the scores are in and the judgements have been passed! With no ifs, buts or maybes allowed, it’s time to face up to the truth; all the ‘givers’ can pat themselves on the back and as for the ‘takers’, well, it’s never too late to change!

“Give as you Live can help people donate to charity without any extra expense to them, just by making their everyday online purchases, so it’s got to be the easiest way to clock up your charitable brownie points!”

We took the test and got ‘giver’ with a score of 98/100, so we’re pretty happy with how selfless we are!
