It's funny to see Twitter increase so much, especially since everyone is dissing the retention rate. But I like that Blogger has increased, I think that's a sign that people may be "getting" blogging more, or at least becoming more engaged with the online conversation, good post!

I'm surprise that twitter arose a lot then next by the facebook.
I love facebook so much because i can chat with friends too...
Hope next time i can see the rate changes in the blogger..

I love Twitter and these results are not
surprising. I think Twitter will continue
to grow and stay very popular.
