Last week, we asked readers to vote on their favourite free hosted blog service, which of course became a showdown between Blogger and WordPress. There was also a subsequent showdown between Posterous and Tumblr where Tumblr came out ever so slightly ahead.

The breakdown of votes worked out as follows: 50% voters went for WordPress; 26% voted for Blogger; 12.5% voted for Tumblr; and 11.5% voted for Posterous. No-one voted for any of the smaller or older free blog services.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.


Wordpress managed to come out far ahead of Blogger, hopefully by people who realised we meant WordPress.com hosted service, not the self-hosted WordPress.org.

This week’s poll question is: What’s Your Favourite Twitter Client?

Doesn’t matter which device you use it with or if you use several. Just tell us which one you think is the best!

If you use more than one client, let us know how and why in the comments!

    "Taking cues from Microsoft's Metro design language, MetroTwit celebrates an elegant and clean user interface that's beautiful to look at and a pleasure to read."

    TwitPic is not a twitter client.

    • Angela Alcorn

      Yeah, it's stretching the definition a bit - but so many people use TwitPic to post to Twitter that I thought it had best be included. :)

    I use Twitter.com on my iMac. I bounce between Weet and Twitter for iPhone on my iPhone.

    As an FYI, Tweetie is now Twitter for iPhone and Twitterfon is now Echofon. You may want to update the poll so new users are not confused.

    I voted Twitterfon as I use Echofon for Mac, but I use Tweetlogix on my iPhone. Sometimes I have to use Twitter for iPhone or Twittelator Pro too. I also use Osfoora HD on my iPad. There is no way this poll can give an accurate guide to the most popular Twitter client.

    I'm an iPhone user. Before that i had BlackBerry Bold 9700. And for both of them my twitter client of choices were the I'm using an iPhone and i had a BlackBerry before that. For both of them i preferred the official Twitter clients. Because of two reasons, for one, official apps tend to give you just as necessary. This way they keep their apps and user-experience neat and clean by being non-risky and not trying acrobatics with the ui. For the second reason, which is relative and debatable, their integration with the device.

    To summarize, i prefer integrity and minimalism over the new and different, in the end.

    My favorite is Seesmic Web which isn't in the poll, so I voted for Seesmic (I don't like either of their desktop apps all that much).

    Just so you know, TwitterFon is called Echofon now. I know it confused me, so maybe you should edit the poll to indicate this (perhaps say "TwitterFon / Echofon"?).
