Tweetie 7.74% 3.87
Twhirl 5.51% 4.68
Twitterfeed 4.14% 5.26

TwitterFox 1.96% 3.37
Text 2.77% 3.64
TwitterBerry 1.96% 2.86

It is great to see Tweetdeck so far out in front (and if you are wondering, Seesmic Desktop has 1.34% or users) – kudos to @iaindodsworth.  If you get deeper into the data you find, perhaps unsurprisingly that Tweetdeck is more popular with the heavier user.  You can see it in the table above with the Tweets per user count and if you cut the data by number of friends then the same picture emerges.

The one surprising thing for me here is the percentage of people who use the web.

The data is from Twitstat.

  • Think people evolve in their client usage as well. I went from Web to twitter fox, to tweetdeck on the web and from web to twitterberry to dabr on the bb. My guess is you could make a usage flow for light to heavy users and then convince people who are using web to comment a lot (ahem @umairh) to transfer to a better client.
