    In reference to the article, Official Twitter for iPhone app leak reveals major update, interactive features and better notifications via the iMore blog, I am willing to give the upcoming app a try, but I doubt it will unseat Tweetbot as my go-to Twitter app, especially if ads are still a part of it.

    It will be good, but if you are used to a power app like Tweetbot, you'll be disappointed. The Twitter for iPhone app is by far the best native Twitter app for any platform. It will meet 90% of people's needs. Then there is Tweetbot for the other 10% of us. I'll definitely give the T4iP update a go. I always try the new version but doubt it'll beat out my Tweetbot.

    I heard that Twitter is trying to do away with power apps like Tweetbot.

    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 agree. The T4iP app is indeed a worthwhile app, but I'm not sure if it will dethrone Tweetbot, especially if it contains ads.

    I know it won't dethrone Tweetbot for those of us that love and use it. But I would say 90% of all iPhone based Twitter users use the official app. So neither app is really suffering. This'll just make Tapbots work harder to put more in to Tweetbot.

    another thing i love about Tweetbot are the notification tones. very discreet and pleasant to the ears

    every time i hear the dreaded tri-tone i want to break something. which is why i turn the sound OFF on any app that uses it

    Well guys, Twitter for iPhone has been officially updated. This release seems to take direct aim at what Tweetbot does best. Some of the things like timeline content previews and quick tap shortcuts have been brought over.

    It will be interesting to see who this wins over. I have no plans of switching. I love Tweetbot and it's just so much smoother than T4iP. I also don't like ads, something Twitter heavily integrates into the timeline on their native apps.

    Oh, no, Mr Bill!

    The new twitter app still doesn't support tweet marker, so it's still a non-starter for me.

    It has a nice look and feel, and could maybe possibly work, but not without the tweet marker function.

    so apparently you have to turn OFF SMS for each person too or else you get double notifications (twitter and SMS) LAME

    For you Tweetbot users: does that (or any other 3rd party Twitter app) integrate into iOS's native Twitter features, or do you need to have the official app installed? I've never used anything but the official app and you all have me curious!

    as far as i can tell the native OS does not necessarily need the official app to tweet. well, that's how it is with iOS 6. the same with FB and the ability to post messages from the NC

    and no integration with Tweetbot but it has never been a concern for me either

    I might give it a go soon, but I'm beta testing another Twitter app/tweak and want to keep things clean to avoid issues with that...the one thing that really bugs me about Tweetbot is the icon--I just think it's the worst. Of course, I can change that if needed!
