DiggGraphr [arpitonline.com] is a treemap visualization of the stories published on Digg, where each story is represented by a rectangle and the area occupied by each rectangle is proportional to the number of Diggs relative to the other stories in that channel.

DiggGraphr is inspired by marumushi/Marcos Weskamp's excellent NewsMap, but instead of news articles, it represents Digg stories. It is also available as a desktop application which can be downloaded here.

I did this app about 1-2 years ago, called Digg UFO. It's a news reader as well but more oriented towards showing all categories in chronological order. The count of digg is represented in the opacity of the boxes.

Actually, scratch what I said about brilliant... their design really needs some work :/

Thanks for that one! Sadly it does not make use of permalinks. NewsMap is great, especially for this feature.
I would love to see this kind of tree visualization for Twitter as well. It could be aggregated via the # selector.

If there is already one, please enlighten me. ;)

Isn't this just a derivative of Marcos Weskamp's 'Newsmap'?
