The Complete List of Top Twitter Services

The Complete List of Top Twitter Services

This is the Complete List of Top Twitter Services by Unique Monthly visitors based on Compete numbers.

In February Leena Rao at Techcrunch posted “The Top 21 Twitter Applications (According to Compete)” with a list that was later, after much debate, expanded to show 22 services. It was a nice effort to show the growing popularity of third party Twitter services.

As you might know we started TwitterCounter and were added to the list (after they forgot us first) and made it to the 4th spot in the list. Since then we have been keeping a close eye on the traffic stats of the other services on the list.

Today we are publishing a Google Doc which will be easy to expand with new services. If you see one we missed, and which has more unique visitors than number 24, please let us know (in the comments please) so we can add it.

A few notable stats:

  • TweetMeme grew a whopping 57,000% in the past 5 months and went from 6,000 to 3,600,000 unique visitors a month. this places them at #1 in our top 24.
  • Tweetvisor seems to have lost the most ground as it went from 31,000 to less than 9,000 unique visitors. Somewhere along the line they lost 73% of their audience.
  • MobyPicture did VERY well growing 660% from 12,000 to 95,000 unique monthly visitors.
