    As Rene recently posted on the blog, is a reincarnation of the old which if you have used it, you will remember the pain and suffering it gave after using a native app which gave the neat features the mobile web version didn't do. This included something called "Re-tweet" something the HTML twitter didn't straight-forwardly do. So to sum it all up, do you think the new mobile version of Twitter will compete against those tons of native apps using twitter APIs or are the masses too planted in their decision to revert?

    web apps can't have push notifications so i don't think a web app will ever take the place of a native app. that would defeat the purpose of native apps altogether.

    I have this as a web app for trying it out. But it will not ever replace SimplyTweet. How can you do a #FF using this as a web app?

    The web app is really beautiful and I'm happy they finally got rid of that initial garbage but it won't replace Echofon.

    The update is certainly a lot better than the old one. Not a replacement for Tweetie and Boxcar though...

    twitter should have created a native iphone app to begin with.

    this is a step in the right direction, but i'll stick with tweetie.
