Twitter has been around for quite a long while and so has Android, but there hasn’t been an official Twitter app for users of Android phones who like to share the minutiae of their every thoughts every minute of every day. Until now, that is.
The Twitter team has just announced through their official blog that Twitter for Android is already available in the Android marketplace, and it serves its purpose as a convenient way to delivery tweets straight from a user’s phone while offering tight integration with other services and Android features.
Twitter for Android enables users to access tweets with a special home screen widget, as well as while viewing maps, scanning the phonebook, or any application that uses Android’s QuickContact bar. It’s well thought out indeed. Only niggle is, the app only works on phones running Android 2.1 and later.
Above are a couple of screenshots of Twitter for Android in action, and if you think that’s great, the Twitter team says “this is just the beginning.” What are they going to do next? Wire all Android phones directly to our brains so we can tweet without even having our phones in sight? Well, that’s one possibility in the future. Check out the official Twitter blog for info on how to download.
