In his blog post, Evan Williams, the CEO and co-founder of Twitter had announced that Tweetie shall be renamed as ”
” and would be made available free of charge. Williams had also indicated that the new app shall be launched in a ”
” time.
At the time of theacquisition, Williams had noted in his blog post that the Twitter user experience on the iPhone had a massive room for improvement. So we expect to see some major improvements in Tweetie reincarnated as Twitter for iPhone rather than just getting renamed.
The official Twitter iPhone app is great news from a user point of view as they will get an improved version of the $2 iPhone app for free but it is bad news for developer of Twitter iPhone apps as they now have to compete with a free iPhone app from Twitter.
Loren Brichter had revealed last month that his work in the Twitter mobile team will also include the development of an app for iPad. We'll have to see if Twitter will launch the iPad app along with Twitter for iPhone .
We expect an announcement on this in the next few hours.
