Twitter is better than Facebook

Among social networking sites, Facebook is by far the most preferred service for sharing, making up more than 78% of usage. Yet other sites are gaining: Twitter maintains 5% of referrals, and MySpace, surprisingly, comes in at second with 14.5% share.


Yet Twitter has become the most effective tool for click-throughs. Twitter yielded a whopping average of 19.04 clicks, whereas Facebook only produced 2.87 clicks.

7 times better. - from here.

And yes, the open structure of Twitter graph lets easily implement some tools for links extracting. E.g. Links from Twitter or Lists from Twitter Both mashups let you find interesting links in Twitter.
