Exactly, what is the best twitter app? Hard question and I guess it comes only to your own personal preference. However I do have a list with my favorite iPhone twitter apps that I can share with you :P.
Whenever there is new app I must download and try it out, but at the end of the day I only use a bunch of them, the rest I delete from my phone. This means that in time I get the best of the best, handpicked apps.
First Twitter app I installed was Twitter for iPhone, the official twitter app and it was very good. After that I managed to add 4 great ones on the list.
Honestly I think this list won’t change much over time.
