120 Twitter Mashups and Growing Fast

John Musser, February 19th, 2009

TwitterWhat’s the hottest API on ProgrammableWeb today? It’s the Twitter API. This is not surprising to folks tracking the latest news on Techmeme where hardly a day goes by without another Twitter-related headline. And indeed we’re seeing the impact here on PW, with a large spike in the number of Twitter applications being added to our directory. Just look at today’s entries where all three of the new mashup listings use the Twitter API. We now have 120 Twitter apps in our directory.

As we’ve discussed before, Twitter’s API gets at least 10x the traffic of their web site. And it’s likely much more than that today given the proliferation of the third-party apps using this one API. Good thing they’ve raised $35 million to grow the platform

Here’s a sampling of some of the most recent Twitter apps here:
