Editors' review

As a whole, Twitter's official mobile app is solid. The interface is sleek, and it brings with it most of the features you'd expect from a Twitter client produced in-house.

All of Twitter's features are housed in four different navigation tabs. Home is your primary Twitter feed, just as you would expect. Each time you boot up the app, it opens to your Home screen and lands on the last tweet that you read. You can tap the Home tab to quickly jump to the top. The Connect tab charts your interactions with your Twitter friends, showing your mentions and letting you know when others retweet or begin following you. Discover houses several items including relevant stories, activity stream (what you're connections are doing on Twitter), trending hashtags, suggestions for who to follow, categories, and a find-friends function. And of course, the Me tab lets you view your profile.

Sending tweets from the mobile app is even easier than doing so on the Web. Autocomplete makes mentioning friends a snap, and you can easily attach photos and location stamps in a few taps.

In addition to Twitter basics, the mobile app offers quite a few nifty features to make it easy for you to check your stream and fire tweets off while on the go. One of the newest features is Expanded Tweets. Now, tweets that contain links to Twitter's partner sites display rich content inline, right on your stream. Also, the Twitter app offers push notifications, so you can be notified right as someone you're following tweets or retweets. And with other nice touches like multiple account support, list management, and saved searches, the app gives you pretty much everything you need.

Overall, Twitter for Android does everything you need it to. If you're a power user and are looking for features like scheduled tweets, then you might want to look into a third-party client. Otherwise, I highly recommend this download.

    "Waste of precious screen real estate"

    December 21, 2011   |   By LoRdSkaRn

    Version: Twitter for Android (Official) 3.0

    Pros

    The previous version was great - lightweight, fast, clean uncluttered interface.
    The current version takes most of that away (see Cons)

    Cons

    - The large blue bar on top, and the four huge icons, are a waste of precious screen real estate, especially if you are using the app on phones and not a tablet.
    - Please remove unnecessary border around the content to allow more tweets to show on screen

    Summary

    Please allow users the option to go back to previous versions, or come up with a lightweight version.

    "This is not an App."

    June 12, 2010   |   By rdmcm

    Version: Twitter for Android (official) 1.0

    Pros

    I can't think of one.

    Cons

    Every time I attempted to use it, it loaded my browser. Every other time I tried to use it [within minutes of download] it required an update. But always the same update.

    Summary

    I was looking to find the actual App. to make my Twitter use more streamlined. Certainly not yet another reason to open my browser. I don't think this is worth the time at all.
