You'll see once you follow more than 50, even trying to manage them via sms becomes unweildy. There's no easy way to turn them on/off, and no way to remember who you've got turned on until a tweet comes through from them...and how do you ever remember who you forgot?

A great thing is that the push notifications are for all direct messages and mentions, not just direct messages and mentions from other SimplyTweet users. I suggest you try the lite version first, which has no ads, just limited features (and no push). If you like it, buy the full version. Another great thing: This dev (MotionObj) ads new features like crazy. You can expect big updates to the app every week or two with great new features.

Twitter and Social Networking apps
I searched and didn't find many threads about this topic. What are you guys/gals using for Twittering and other Social Networking sites? Throw up names, links, cost and reveiws.
qtweet: Loved the interface but I just couldn't bring myself to pay for something I could find a free app that would do the same thing just as well
Duo: Allows me to update twitter and facebook at once. I love this it's very simple and gets the job done
Motherfeed: I got friendfeed and Motherfeed allows me to post to both twitter and friendfeed. Again simple and gets the job done.
Pixelpipe: My all time favorite because I've added twitter, facebook, friendfeed, bloggers.com, twitpic, and flickr. Pixelpipe allows me to update friendfeed and twitter with pictures as well as all the others if I choose to so it's my number one pick for now.

There is a huuuuuuuuuuuge thread on Twitter apps here.
If you want to update Twitter and FB together, make sure your accounts are linked, and include the #FB hashtag in your Twitter status update.
I like Twittelator Pro because it lets me use Mobypic, which in turn updates all my associated sites: youtube, Flickr, Brightkite, etc.

I predominately use Twitterrific Premium but I keep TwitterFon to use when I want to @ someone who's not in my immediate timeline or when I want to see who others follow. Not sure why Twitterrific doesn't do those things. Other than those 2 instances, however, Twitterrific is all I need and I'm very happy with it.

def Tweetie remembers where i am at which was one of the big things and the retweet option that many apps have interface is nice. another thing to note i have mine connected to facebook and twitterific would post my @replies to facebook tweetie does not and was one of the big reasons i stuck with it.

I've tried at least 6 and Tweetie is always the one I go back to. I wish it would add a counter to it though so you could be alerted to new @replies, and DMs.
TwitterFon is my favorite free app but the latest version added ads in the most distracting place. I can't use it until they fix that. It drives me nuts.

I mainly use 2 twitter clients. Twitterena is my favorite that I always end up going back to. I also use Tweetie with Boxcar for the push notifications. If it wasn't for the integration with Tweetie I wouldn't use it as often. I like the way Twitterena refreshes better than Tweetie. It has a "magical" refresh which automatically takes you to the first unread tweet. With Tweetie I'm constantly scrolling up and down to find my last read tweet.
On another note, Twitterena is suppose to be coming out with an update to Twitterena Pro that will include Facebook integration. Now if it would just also implement push it would be my one and only twitter app!

I've been using TweetDeck on my desktop for a while now and I can't live without the groups I created so that's my obvious choice for the iPhone. From the comparison Alli posted, it seems Twittelator Pro is the only other client with groups and TweetDeck is free (and has almost all of the same features). It's a no brainer for me. After the latest update I haven't had any issues on my 3GS. I can sync my groups with their server fine now.
