Official Twitter App
The official Twitter app is obviously the first one to go for if you’re looking to use Twitter usually without any add-ons. It does all the basic Twitter functions which you would be used to and has some neat UI elements. I personally like the official Twitter app and use it as my main tweeting tool. Recently it has been updated to support multiple accounts which is always a bonus.
Tweetdeck is a very well known Twitter client and is usually used by the power users out there. It features nice columns where you can assign a column to timeline, mentions, lists…etc. It also has Facebook and Foursquare integration so you can have three big names in social networks within one app. The UI is great, with a dark theme which simply shows the content you want.
Seesmic is just like Tweetdeck with the support for Twitter and Facebook accounts. However it lays out it’s sections such as mentions and timeline in tabs. I love the UI of Seesmic and how minimal it is. It also tells you how many times a tweet has been retweeted which I really like, even if it is a little thing which others may not care about.
Tweetcaster is a very popular twitter client for Android and is used by a lot of the Android community. I’m personally not a fan of the app and how it is designed but I guess it is all down to preference.
Twidroyd is also another very popular twitter client for the Android platform. Famous tech sites such as Engadget named it “Best Twitter App”. Again I am personally not a fan of the UI of the app but functionality is great just like the other Twitter apps mentioned.
