Editors' Note: The "Download Now" link directs you to the product page in the online Android Market. The application can directly be downloaded and installed on the registered Android device from your PC, or you can download it from the Android Market on your Android device.
Twitter for Android gives you full access to Twitter without opening your browser, but it's also specifically designed for mobile use. Recent updates include improved Search displays, and Home, Activity, and Discover are now accessible when you swipe Timelines.
Built for Android: Twitter for Android bypasses Web browsers and any vulnerabilities in favor of integrated features. For example, it can send and receive photos privately in Messages.
Notifications: Twitter for Android's notifications appear in your device's notifications tray (with optional sound effects). We could configure custom notifications for specific accounts, so we wouldn't miss important tweets.
App versus mobile browser site: Twitter for Android and Twitter's mobile browser site offer essentially the same thing in a different style, so users who are comfortable using the latter might not benefit from the Android-specific app.
Twitter for Android works great, but the browser version, though slightly different in appearance, also accesses Twitter perfectly well. Which you choose might just come down to a matter of preference. But Twitter for Android is free, and you can always access your Twitter account from any active browser, so what's wrong with having both?

Get short bursts of timely information on the official Twitter app. Real-time search reveals breaking news, while trending topics show what's happening now around the world.
