“Twitter Favorites As Social Bookmarking Tool”

Whether it’s breaking news or sharing links, Twitter has quickly become my number one source for rapid idea communication. It’s more filtered than Digg and easier to use than del.icio.us–kind of like an RSS feed or link blog from people whose ideas or thoughts are valuable to me.

Today, I polled my Twitter followers to see how many people were using the “Favorite” feature. It turns out, many people use it as an instant, more-convenient bookmarking tool for links they receive. Others use it to remember conversation threads or as follow-up reminders for blog posts. Finally, a few don’t use Favorites at all.

Take a look at the results:

Twitter Favorite Poll - 3

Twitter Favorite Poll - 2

Twitter Favorite Poll - 1

Has Twitter decreased your del.icio.us use? Do you ever look at other people’s favorites? Has Twitter replaced your RSS feeds or digg? Let us know in the comments!
