5 Of The Best Twitter Apps For iPhone

When I was watching this past Super Bowl, it hit me that Twitter has become extremely mainstream.  Many of the Super Bowl commercials had hashtags and Twitter accounts written as a way to reach out to their brand.  The Twitter iPhone app and Twitter.com is always good to use, but there are some additional products that sharpens the social media experience.   Below is a list of some of the best Twitter apps for the iPhone.


TweetCaster is a free Twitter iPhone app that lets you create SmartLIsts and hide unwanted tweets without unfollowing users.  TweetCaster supports unlimited accounts and you can post tweets to Facebook.  TweetCaster has push support, Twitter Trends, long tweet support, a Draft Manager, retweets, URL shortening, etc.  This app seems to have it all — It is quite possibly one of the best Twitter iPhone apps on the market.  The Pro version of the app costs $4.99 and it comes without ads.

Echofon is an awesome Twitter app that brings in tweets in real-time when connected to WiFi.  The app lets you preview photos in your Twitter timeline for all major services including Instagram.  You can mute selected users and expedite exchanges with Twitter followers using a Threaded Conversation Mode similar to the way that text messages look on the iPhone.  [iTunes Link]


HootSuite is one of my favorite social media tools because it has seamless synchronization between the iPhone app and website.  You can manage your Facebook account, Facebook Pages, LinkedIn, Foursquare, and Twitter accounts from anywhere using this app.  [iTunes Link]

Twittelator Neue

Twittelator Neue has a nice user interface and lets you see tweeted photos directly in the timeline.  The app has multiple timeline, multiple account, Instant Delivery, Global Search, Hashtag Autocomplete, regional trends, and font choices.  The app costs $4.99 though.  [iTunes Link]


Tweetbot is a Twitter client that has creative sounds and animation, multiple timelines, and smart gestures.  Tweetbot lets you sync the timeline position, mute filters between the iPhone and iPad, read statuses, and customize the navigation.  It also supports multiple services like Pocket, Instapaper, Readability, CloudApp and Droplr.  [iTunes Link]
