Leonardo DiCaprio May Not Have an Oscar, But He’s Considered the Smartest Celebrity on Twitter

July 18th, 2014


Who needs an Oscar when you can be the smartest celebrity on Twitter?

According to a study done by Time Magazine, the Wolf of Wall Street actor is considered the smartest celebrity on the social media site. The magazine deduced that Leo tweets at almost an 8th grade level. That may seem embarrassing, but according to the magazine the average person tweets at a 4th grade level.

The magazine analyzed the last 20 tweets from the 500 most followed celebrities on the social network and used the SMOG test to judge the grade level of the accounts. The SMOG (Simple Measure of Gobbledygook) test judges the amount of three syllable words in a tweet and calculates the grade level it would take to understand it. A reason why the average person has a fourth grade level could be because of Twitter’s 140 character limit. Many people are forced to use slang and shorten their tweets, which lowers the grade level.

Leo primarily uses his Twitter to edcucate his followers on various environmental issues he’s passionate about which may be why he ranked number one on the list.

Other celebrities that made the magazines top 50 list are Justin Bieber’s mom Pattie Mallette who came second. Pattie usually tweets bible verses, or Instagram photos but every now and then a true gem like this gets tweeted.

Jimmy Kimmel came in third with a 7th grade level. This is truly the tweet of a budding genius.

And rapper/actor Ludacris, who really just tweets his Instagram photos, ranked fourth with a 6.8 grade level.

Curious about your Twitter grade level? Time has a cool way of calculating the grade level of any Twitter user. Hopefully you make the fourth grade level.
