iOS 5 Twitter integration
With iOS 5 Twitter integration does it make more sense to use the official app instead of a third party app? How has it effected your twitter app use? I'm curious if this is going to kill most third party twitter developers.

You do not need to use the official twitter app to take advantage of iOS 5's new twitter features. Those features are already present, regardless of whether or not you download any twitter app.
You don't have to choose between third-party twitter apps and iOS 5's twitter features, the two are not mutually exclusive, and thus they really have no baring on people using third party apps.

What Jellotime says is true. The iOS 5 feature is for apps where you can easily tweet message and attach content without having to authorize each app you use by Twitter. It's a convenience, really and works in a similar way as eMailing from within an app. Also, that little sound effect you hear after each tweet is sheer class
Like with the mail app, you still need a Twitter client to manage your tweets. iOS 5 does not prove such a client.

So you can sign into your twitter account via settings without actually downloading the official twitter for iPhone app and then take advantage of features such as posting pictures, websites, etc. directly through their respective apps via the new twitter integration in iOS 5? That is, I won't actually need the twitter for iPhone app actually display anywhere on my home screen, but I will still be able to use those features? Or will the actual app need to be on my phone?

Is there a way to sync my iphone phone book to twitter? I used to be able to sync my contacts to facebook and thought i would be able to do the same with twitter but do not see a way to do it. Am I missing something or is it automatic? If its automatic it is not picking up on some of my contacts. Looking forward to any and all feedback. Thanks.

I have a contact in my iphone that has a twitter account.Why is it that twitter will not associate the contact with his twitter account and there fore not add his twitter account to his contact information. I have gone under twitter and updated and it still doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks.

Is it possible to manually add social media addresses (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) to my contact list on my iPhone? I read on cnet that it was but can't find anything about how to do it. Thanks!
