Following my experiment with sampling the public Twitter timeline this morning, I ran another sample, this time for much longer and at a time of day, when many American users would be active to get a slightly more accurate breakdown of the top twenty Twitter clients.
In comparison to the earlier results, there has been a bit of jostling in the mid-to-bottom table positions, but the top three positions remain the same. The percentage of tweets posted “via web” is greater at 37%.

Update: I’ve just discovered that a daily breakdown of twitter clients is presented by @twitstat. Notably their “via web” percentage is much reduced compared to what I measured and UberTwitter ranks in a much more lowly position. Their method is different (better?) in that they only sample unique user/client combinations – I might try that another day to see if my results really are skewed so significantly.
