Android gets official Twitter app


Already available on the iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones, the official Twitter mobile app is now also available for the Android platform. Twitter for Android just hit the Android Market which features full support for widgets with the ability to view tweets direct from the Quick Contact bar as well as upload images and videos straight from the gallery. As good as it sounds, it’s not perfect though. It lacks support for multiple Twitter accounts and is currently only compatible with Android 2.1 (Nexus One, Droid Incredible, etc) and above devices. Nonetheless, it’s a pretty good first offering albeit restricted to Android 2.1 and above powered handsets, and whatever limitations this version has can easily be addressed in future software updates. For now, those still using an Android 1.6 device will have to content themselves with 3rd party developed Twitter apps for Android or accessing the popular social networking site at via the mobile web browser.
