Top 10 Twitter Applications - April 2009

I had listed the top 10 twitter apps for the month of march. Now lets see how did they fair in the month of April. Twitpic retains the top position with 3,328,816 unique visitors this month, it has seen a growth of 38% this month and its pretty consistent in its growth, which is commendable. Tweetmeme is a new entry in this list and it has the second highest unique visitors this month. It has seen a growth of 337% this moth. Something quite amazing!

Note that I have not taken the twitter website into consideration in rating and by default its the No1 site to access tweets. This list also does not consider mobile apps for twitter and its purely the web based clients for twitter

 The stats were collected from Compete.
