20 Twitter Apps You Need to Know About

TweetMeme

TweetMeme is a service that aggregates all the popular links on Twitter to determine which links are popular. TweetMeme also makes the retweet button, which is for content publishers who want to invite their audience to tweet their content on Twitter. The button shows a live count of the number of times your Web page or blog post has been tweeted. Why did we start with this one? eWEEK uses it! Yes, eWEEK uses TweetMeme to tweet and retweet its stories on Twitter with one click of the mouse button. If you are a content publisher, give TweetMeme a try.

TweetMeNews

Since that explosion the world has seen a convergence of information on Twitter, reducing the need to visit other sites."
