Hey all,

I'm new to twitter but I'm keen to get stuck in. Just wondering what everyone recommends for Twitter on an iPhone 3GS.

It's more of a personal preference thing. I use Twitter (previously Tweetie), some friends use Twitterific and think it's great too. You basically need to give some a go and find the best match for you.

Twitter is free, and is full featured. I'd start there and if you find you're missing something then you can look into the alternatives.

I iz your trusted friend

(Official) Twitter for iPhone is pretty good. I quite like it. I have used many others with the last one before changing to Twitter for iPhone was Echofon Lite, Twitterific too.

Internet is my backyard...

Thanks for the quick replies guys. I'll give Twitter a go seeing as its a free way to check out iPhone Tweeting.

I use hootsuite - has twitter, linkedin and facebook all in one. Excellent app IMO.

I used Tweetie/Twitter for quite some time until Osfoora was offered for free for a weekend. Instantly hooked!

It looks like it's based on Tweetie/Twitter but with added functionality and less bugginess. Only problem is it's one you have to buy.
