Editors' review

Twitter is the self-named official app for everyone's favorite micro-blogging service, and it works very well to manage any number of accounts on the go. Considering Twitter was conceived as a mobile-friendly social network, it needs an app like this to facilitate quick responses, on-the-go tweets, and image sharing. The result is a mostly-good, but slightly-flawed interface that has some performance issues but generally offers everything you want and expect from a Twitter client.

After installing Twitter, you must enter at least one account. You can create a new one from the app, though because of the mobile limitations upon set up, it's recommended that you do this on your desktop. After logging in, you can check messages, send new tweets, respond to mentions, or switch to another account. The breakdown of these features is a bit messy, requiring you to move from screen to screen looking for the right message, and the notifications system works only a percentage of the time. It's a high percentage, but the frequency with which notifications did not arrive or would arrive late is worrisome for a mobile communication platform.

Overall, however, Twitter is one of the best mobile platforms for the service. It has issues, but considering the sheer number of features it automates, from multi-account management to direct response and what essentially amounts to instant messaging and picture sharing, it is a very effective and easy-to-use app -- a must-have for any Twitter users on the go.
