    I actually like TfiP. Only thing that drives me nuts is at times when I tweet someone the iphone app doesn't always find the person I am tweeting. So I have to remember the entire username and spell it completly out. Has anyone else had this?

    I installed the new Twitter for iphone app last night and thus far, I'm liking it. I've yet to see any ads (Thank GOD), the follower tweet notifications work great, I can see everyone's profiles without a problem and it is fast and responsive, at least on my device. I think I'm going to hang on to it for a bit longer HaHa.

    I've never had SMS notifications enabled via the Twitter web site settings.

    the reason why i ask is because i use sms notifications for certain people i follow to get the instant notification already. the problem being i have to work my way into Tweetbot to respond/reply

    obviously with the updated Twitter app it can be done right from the lockscreen or banner (via app) which seems very convenient

    are you using this feature like i have described? and overall how do you like using it?

    No problem, my friend, and yes, I am using it in the manner you described and I like it. There are still some bugs, one in particular is somewhat annoying & that is after I've sent a tweet and return to the home timeline screen, the words, "sending tweet" remains at the top of the screen even though I can see the sent tweet in the timeline. It prevents me from tapping on the time to scroll quickly to the top. I have to exit the app and re-initiate it to get it back to the way it should. It doesn't happen all the time, however. Still, I like it overall and I'm a power user, but not the type to follow celebrities, athletes, etcetera.

    (laughing(...I suppose you could be stalked to an extent, especially people who like to include their location in the tweet. Today's generation seem to enjoy broadcasting their whereabouts to everyone except their parents

    I'm still using the Official Twitter app and the bug I mentioned earlier seemed to have worked itself out. I like the new app and I'll continue to use it for the remainder of the day and then decide whether or not to delete it. I still have Tweetbot installed, by the way.

    I've used it almost exclusively since I've installed it. The specific tweet notification is a big win in my opinion. I follow certain members of Congress and have Twitter set to notify me when some of them tweet and it works flawlessly. When I'm notified of the tweets and tap on the alert in the notification center, the official Twitter app is initiated and I end up tweeting with it instead of Tweetbot. Given a few more tweaks and it will be hard to compete with.

    thanks for the info! i may give it a go again for that reason alone

    i am going to assume Tweebot will end up adding this feature eventually *fingers crossed*

    You're very welcome blink. FYI: if you plan on using the specific tweet notification, be sure to pick people who do not tweet constantly or the alerts will drive you insane...(laughing)

    Have you tried the official Twitter for iPhone app? It's one of the best designed and most functional apps available for iOS. The only reason so many people use Tweetbot is the power user features. Twitter for iPhone is far from a failure, like the Blackberry version is.
    I do like the Official Twitter App for a lot of reasons, but one thing I do not like is that when you try to "@" mention someone, it doesn't always populate the user you are trying to mention. The iPhone doesn't always do that when you try to mention someone when posting a tweet from Safari from a picture using the native option tweet. Kind of annoying
