Favstar (also known as favstar.fm) is an online service that tracks Twitter and Twitter usage. Favstar uses data from user "favorites" - or when a Twitter post is bookmarked (starred) by individual users.[3] As posts, or tweets, are given more stars, specific posts move up in rankings according to different criteria, including recent posts, newer posts, and all-time favorites.
