While there are many great Twitter clients helping us voice our <140, quickly upload pictures and check up on what everybody else has to say, there’s a glaring lack of proper Twitter management apps out there.

Today, however, I trudged across Twitter Manager, which claims to be the "ultimate tool for managing your followers and friends in Twitter". For the introductory price of 99 cents, I decided to give it a whirl on my iPhone 4S.

I don’t profess to be the keenest of tweeters, having been somewhat dragged on kicking and screaming back in September of last year. Still, as a keen statistician, I find the idea of monitoring what’s what and who’s who in the world of Twitter to be an interesting pastime.

What paints itself as a rather interesting management tool, however, obscures a slight undercurrent of the obsessive, stalker-ish, friend-request-obsessed side of social networking most of us detest.

When you open the app, there’s the usual permission request for the Twitter login credentials. I have to say, the Twitter integration within iOS 5 highlights the seamless experience I hope one day trickles through to every app on the planet, but I digress.

Once you’re in, you have an expansive list of tools including the ability to check who’s not following you back (so, presumably, you can unfollow them), as well as useful, maintenance features such as the capacity to remove those with no description, no recent tweets, or those with that familiar, unchanged ‘egg’ image.

In terms of the UI, it’s nice, clean, and easy to navigate, although the constant blueness throughout can get a tad monotonous, and I do feel the app could benefit from a dose of color.

Although it does have some useful features, I can’t help feeling this is an app for those obsessed with, who follows them, how many followers they have, and keeping a certain followers/following ratio.

Still, it does have legitimate uses, and it is a decent app. For 99 cents, it’s certainly worth checking out if you wish to be a little more in the know with what’s occurring in and around your Twitter profiles.
