Twitter is this year’s main buzz and so far it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Millions of people spend hours micro-blogging on Twitter and even big brands are embracing Twitter to grow their business.
With such Twitter global use it definitely make sense to spot most popular trends people are discussing:
Twitter Meme and Buzz Trackers:
- Tweet Meme, as the domain name suggests, tracks and displays memes in a handy threaded style. It will also show you how many Twitterers exactly are passing the meme:
- TwittUrly displays hottest memes in a Digg-like style (where Tweets = Votes):
- Twit Scoop shows “what’s hot right now” in the form of a tag cloud and the”Hot trends” list. The tool also shows the list of discussions when hovered over:
The tag cloud displays one-word terms, while the trend list rates multi-word hot phrases (note: the match is not exact, for example, “intel study case” includes “Intel case study,” “Intel SSDs RAID o, A Case study in speed..,” etc).
Twitter Buzz Comparison Tools:
- SiteVolume compares up to 5 terms buzz over at Twitter (and also Digg, Myspace, Youtube and Flickr) – the results are pulled from Google [site:] search.
- TwitterMeter is another great Twitter buzz evaluator but it is broken for now (the resulst are outdated, “reduced to only one week of data from 2/21 to 2/27”). However they promise to be back soon, so will be checking back.
