Will The Real Digg Twitter Please Stand Up? The biggest four players in the house

Categories Articles, Freebies, Twitter

The Twitter hype is now HUGE, we’re praising the Twitter effect, the power of RT – that’s the new DIGG, the Oprah-will-eat-Twitter effect (oh, did I said that?) and so on. But while we’re just talking, other guys do the hard job – they try to actually use Twitter like the a Digg style aggregator. I have spotted four players and one ex contestant (Dwigger). Here they come, give a big hand to TweetMeme (everybody’s favorite), DailyRT,  Twittl & Twittley.

TweetMeme

tweetmeme

Tweetmeme is a service that aggregates all the popular links on twitter to determine which links are popular. Tweetmeme is able to categorize these links into categories and subcategories, making it easy to filter out the noise to find what your interested in.

DailyRT

dailyrt

The most popular news on Twitter via the hottest tweets on the web.

Twittl

twittl

Twittl is a home for the Twitter community, where anyone can post and rate their favorite tweets (posts) from Twitter. You can also share your favorite tweets with friends and followers.

Twittley

twittley

Twittley is the first Twitter social news website made for people to discover and share content through Twitter network, by submitting links and stories, and voting and commenting on submitted links and stories.

So what do you think? Did they make the last two websites without knowing about the existence of TweetMeme or wha’? Do you even care about this kind of services?

  • Twittl.com stands out because it is not simply collating the retweets on twitter. It is user driven and therefore less prone to spammers.
    Twittl shouldn’t be in this list as it is vote driven.

    I would like to see this reviewed on its own. I use it and love it.

    Tweetmeme is full of links from twitter that have been retweeted through a spammers 50 twitter accounts. My vote is for twittl which is already larger than dailyRT and twittley.

  • Social networks are about their users and that is where Twittley shines.

    Tweetmeme simply aggregates and counts the number of times a link is tweeted.

    Twittley goes beyond the simple act of counting, we use an algorithm based on both Twitter statistics and Twittley statistics including various items such as follower counts, frequency of tweets, number of tweets clicked on, retweets, etc…

    That makes it much harder to spam the system and to ensure that users see what they are actually interested in.
