Twitter is going to start judging your tweets and adding value ratings to them.

Speaking in a post on Twitter’s developer blog, the micro-blogging site will be adding new fields to Tweet structures returned by the API.

According to Twitter, the changes are to help developers work with targeted subsets of Tweet collections.

It is still unclear how Twitter will rank Tweets but we would expect it would boil down to tweets receiving high engagement (retweets and replies) and the number of followers the individual, who engaged with your tweet, has.

The changes could be implemented as early as Wednesday 20th February.
