Best twitter app?
Im just getting into the whole twitter thing and finding the best available app is complicated with so many choices. Im not a power user or need anything complicated. I just need a well thought out app, nice to look at and just plain easy to use.
Ive been recommended seismic and twitdroid, but havent heard anyone talk about the official app.
Thoughts? Recommendations?In Soviet Russia, android roots you!

tweetdeck by far for me. it integrates along with twitter, facebook, foursquare, and buzz. plus it has 3 widget options based on what you want to do from your home screen. you can post directly, view a certain column (basically it can be as basic as your twitter/facebook feed, a combo or both, or something unique) as well as a widget that just launches a certain column in the app.
for me what sold me on it was the integration it has with facebook. each tweet it gives you an option to post to both or just one account. Along with that the user interface is very clean and easy to use.

Currently using Samsung's friends & feeds widget. Downloaded Hootsuite a few days ago and didn't liked it. Too complicated (not a power user here either). No widget, no facebook combination currently, and too many steps just to view the posts. Uninstalled.
I'll try Tweetdeck also from the recs.To each their own...

For me, a lot of the Twitter apps lack one piece that would make them perfect. Tweetdeck lacks a widget that displays tweets instead of just linking to individual columns. The official client lacks support for multiple accounts. Tweetcaster needs visual refinements.
Whichever one of those three fixes their problems first will win my whole-hearted support. Until them, I'll keep client-hopping.this body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
embrace this moment. remember, we are eternal; all this pain is an illusion.

Tweetdeck is convenient for me since I use Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. However I still use Twidroyd for tweets with mentions because it has lists my friends I follow as I type. Once Tweetdeck has that I probably won't be using Twidroyd much.LG TP 1100 | Sanyo SCP-5150 | LG PM-325 | Nokia 1100 | Motorola v557 | Treo 755p | HTC EVO 4G | Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch | Galaxy S3

I like Twidroyd a lot. It has the best feature of any Twitter app and that is the LiveView function. While reading my Tweets, I never have to leave the application to go to the browser. The links open right up in Twidroyd, basically instantly. It does literally everything I can think of in a Twitter application. I suggest all of you try it for a day and see how great it is.
