Along with the URL, Twitturly also displays who has tweeted it and what their comment was about it.
Twitturly.com In Their Own Words
“It operates similar to Digg where people vote on an item and it gets displayed higher up the home page, but more closely to PageRank where basically every person that links to the same final url, is considered a vote for that URL. With Each vote that the URL gets, it climbs further and further up the list.”
