Watch out U.S. News and World Report, there's a new ranking system in town. Does your college have Klout?

Klout measures influence across the social web, looking not at metrics like follower count, but the ability to drive action. The Klout Score measures influence on a scale of 1 to 100, with higher scores indicating that the account regularly gets retweeted, @mentioned, put on lists and engaged with by the some of the most influential people on Twitter.

Twitter influence is a revealing metric for colleges.The most influential ones must be both tech-savvy enough to have a well managed Twitter account and have the most influential professors, alums, and others engaging with them.

So who tops the list? I'm proud to say my own alma mater, Stanford, is number one! Check out the top ten below.
