Twitter has been a hot topic again over the past couple of days with speculation circulating that the company may purchase Summize.
Despite user complains about outages, Twitter has remained the most popular among the micro-blogging services. Last week, the traffic for Twitter was 12
times higher than the total traffic for up-and-coming rival Plurk, and 24 times higher than FriendFeed -- technically more than a micro-blogging service, but this is where some users have migrated
during Twitter outages, according to Hitwise.--Gavin O'Malley
