What is the history and popularity of the app?

With numerous copyright issues associated with Fav.or.it, the web company has been shut down but its products which are TweetMeme and TweetTabs still remain. Hence, TweetMeme has become even more famous than its predecessor because of its clean copyright history and usefulness as an application.
