Most web services like Twitter for example require a unique email address for each account you create. What if you want to create two or more accounts, but only have (or want to use) one Gmail address?

Twitter is one of the most important channels for informing the world about what is happening in Iran.

Tweetmeme (Tmm) is a service built around the highly popular Twitter micro-blogging service. Tmm counts the number a certain web page has been tweeted about. If a certain page gets a lot of tweets it hits the Tmm front page, which will generate even more traffic.
Currently the Tmm home page only gets a few thousand visitors, so it's not even comparable to the traffic that digg can generate.
