Tweetbot vs. Twitterrific vs. Twitter: iPad Twitter App Shootout!

Rene Ritchie, writing for TiPb:

“We’ve often said iOS and Twitter and like chocolate and peanut butter, two great tastes that taste even better together. And it’s true. Time after time, platform after platform, the best developers and designers always seem to gravitate towards making Twitter clients, and nothing proves that more than Twitterrific, Twitter, and Tweetbot.”

Rene has a good, side-by-side comparison of the big three iOS Twitter clients. Worth a read if you're wondering whether the grass is greener elsewhere.

I'll be sticking with Twitterific. It has a cleaner UI, easy workflow and can make use of Tweet Marker.

That last item lets me keep my MacBook Pro, iPhone and iPad Twitter clients in sync. Where I leave off with one I can pick up with either of the others. The last-read tweet is automatically placed at the top of my timeline.
