The official Twitter app for Android is excellent ! There are many Twitter apps out there already but an official Twitter app for the Android makes you feel like home. And it really pwns all other Twitter clients on Android like Seesmic, TweetCaster, HootSuite and so on. We can really call it Tweetie for Android, which itself will be renamed and launched as Twitter for iPhone in the not so distant future.

Some of the key features of the app are as follows.

  • A widget on the home screen which allows you to update your Twitter status without having to launch the app over and over again.
  • Twitter’s location based service which allows you to see your friend’s tweets near you on the map.
  • Integration of Twitter with your phonebook contacts, along with their phone numbers and e-mail addresses you can now see their status updates right from your contacts list.
  • Last but not the least, the ability to share photos.

You can download the Twitter app right now from the Android Market. Head over there from your handset and give the app a try. [via Twitter Blog]
