Twitturly Twitter Top 100

Twitturly is one more innovative Twitter cousin. It provides a continuously updated list of the top 100 Twitter 
topics as voted by users. Or, as they describe themselves: 
"Twitturly is a service for tracking what URLs people are talking about as they talk about them on Twitter
Twitturly is a service for tracking what URLs people are talking about as they talk about them on Twitter. The easiest way to understand how Twitturly works is, if you are familiar with digg, then you already know essentially what we do. If you don't know what digg is, then here is a quick run-down: On Digg, and Twitturly, people "vote" for a URL. The more votes it gets the better it ranks. If it does well enough, it gets promoted to the home page and as the votes increase it gets displayed higher up the home page. Twitturly is different than Digg because instead of voting on our site, you vote by participating on Twitter. Each time that you send a link to your followers on Twitter, Twitturly takes a note of it and applies your vote to that URL. 
Whether people use, TinyURLSnipurl (snurl), or link directly to the final URL in their tweets, we always count the "votes" correctly because our spiders actually visit every single site before it gets displayed here. To keep things fresh and the quality high, twitturly only shows the 100 most popular URLs over the last 24 hours. The 24 hours are constantly sliding and we have an advanced algorithm in place so you always see what people are currently talking about. 
If you want to help shape where twitturly is going, as well as hear about new features as they go live, contact or follow me on twitter or visit the Official Twitturly Blog. If you are interested in helping Twitturly get to the next stage, we are currently looking for Angel Funding.
