Online performance and competitive analysis site Hitwise has compiled a list of the top 10 sites that have benefited from Twitter’s enormous surge in popularity.
Remember these are sites visited after Twitter, usually leaving because the user clicked a link of some sort. Facebook, Twitpic, Myspace and Google all have their own gadgets/widgets and so it’s no surprise to see them up there – Friendfeed is a miss though but at this stage, you really can’t compare.
Below is a graph revealing the various traffic stats of other sites. As BusinessInsider points out, it’s interesting to see Facebooks growth shoot upwards over the last couple of months, particularly since its latest Friendfeed-like ‘stream’ release.
On a side note, BusinessInsider have a series of posts appropriately titled “Who’s feeding silicon Valley“, which gives a good overview of who brings in traffic to various successful internet startups including YouTube, Facebook and more – highly recommend you check it out.
