A quick look at links mentioned during Inauguration Day shows that CNN was the only site that was shared frequently by both Diggers and Twitterers.
Right before midnight, I looked at the most popular links for the past 24 hours on Digg and extracted the top five links related to the inauguration. Then I did the same for Twitturly and Twitturls, two sites that track links mentioned on Twitter. Here are the results.
