Tweetmeme takes another bite at ranking Twitter links

TweetMeme he spin-off site from the Favorit guys, has sputtered back into life since Twitter sorted out its search problems by buying Summize. The move means that third-party aggregregators like Tweetmeme, which acts like a TechMeme for Twitter, should have a new lease of life. Certainly checking in today reveals a much improved service – indicating just how many people are re-tweeting popular links (although the light blue interface remains a nightmare to look at).

In a blog post today Nick Halstead says Tweetmeme is now grabbing thumbnails of images from the links, ranking twitter users by how fast they link, dealing with spam and is looking at trawling plurk and as well.
