Official Twitter app for Android phones is on the way
First acquired Tweetie which is the very popular Twitter application for the iPhone, then announced the new Twitter app for RIM’s BlackBerry, and now the offical Twitter app for Android phones will be lanunched recently. Today at Twitter’s Chirp conference, CEO Evan Williams said:
“We found we were under-serving users. We realized we had to have a core experience on these major platforms just like we do on the Web, otherwise we are failing users. It’s (Android client) going to be awesome.”
For unofficial Twitter mobile clients like TweetDeck, Twitdroid, Echfon or Seesmic, this is deathful. But it does not exclude that Twitter acquires an existing android twitter client app like “Tweetie for iPhone” acquisition instead of developing its own twitter app that would otherwise take time.
In the near future, Twitter will have its own official client app for the growing smartphone platforms, like iPhone, Blackberry and Android, this means Twitter has a new separate business arm that could be as the “killer apps” in the Mobile Platforms.
