You Gotta Have Friends, But Tweets?

The news on the tweet, er, street, is that social media monster Facebook, already four times the size of Twitter, outpaced its rival in overall growth in July.

According to TechCrunch, Facebook drew 87.7 million unique visitors in July, a 14 percent boost over its June figures, while Twitter bested its June figures by 6 percent, attracting 21.2 million unique visitors to its U.S. Website. Facebook beat Twitter in new visitors by a 10 to 1 margin.

The estimates compiled by comscore do not include statistics from desktop and mobile outlets Tweetdeck, Tweetie, and Seesmic. Overall, Twitter is outgrowing Facebook on an annual basis because it began from a smaller base of initial users. The Palo Alto, California-based Facebook launched in 2004, while the San Francisco-based Twitter flew onto the scene in 2006.

Poke that.
