Twitter is young and powerful, although initially many people including some pro-bloggers doubted the potential of ‘small tweets’ of just 140 words, but now that the dust has settled, Twitter presently at it’s maximum growth has not only crossed one of the most famous social networking website Digg.com in terms of traffic and popularity, but has helped a number of other web masters to create new websites entirely being used as add-ons to Twitter.
According to the stats from Alexa, both in terms of unique visitors and page views per visit, Twitter has clearly overtaken Digg by a large margin.
It’s not just Alexa that is showing Twitter above Digg, Compete has something more than this to say:
