The official Twitter blog has just announced full iOS 4.2 compatibility for iPad and iPhone clients, and official push notifications support for Direct Messages (DMs) and Mentions for Twitter for iPhone client.

Twitter for iOS

When you’re out and about, your phone probably isn’t always in front of you. It might be in your pocket or purse or on a table – perhaps with the screen off. We want to make sure you see important Tweets even when you’re not looking at Twitter at the moment. To help with that, today we’re launching push notifications for @mentions.

Whenever an account that you follow mentions you, you’ll immediately receive a notification. You’ll know who is talking to or about you on Twitter, and you’ll be able to continue the conversation in real-time. Notifications for @mentions will initially be available on SMS and on the latest version of Twitter for iPhone, which you can download today from the App Store.

What’s New in Version 3.2.1

* Push notifications for @mentions and messages
