BackType Connects the Conversation Graph

I’m a strong supporter of BackType and the work of Christopher Golda since the debut of the highly valuable comments search engine last September.

My friends over at HubSpot released the latest market data that reveals which tools and services people are flocking to when communicating on Twitter. According to the research, most people interact on Twitter using Twitter.com from their browser of choice – almost half of all users in fact.
