    I was wondering which twitter apps people used on their Moto X. I really like Tweedle, especially since it has an AMOLED theme option, which should save battery life on the Moto X's AMOLED screen. Also like how fast and smooth the app is. I've also used Seesmic, Plume, and TweetCaster, all which have some pros and cons depending on which features are important to you.

    I used Carbon before as well (the older version though) and it was still a little raw still back then. I'll have to try it again on the newer version at some point.

    Another vote for Carbon...new version has all the features I want and they did a quick updqate to provide more visibility for the new font. Love the dark scheme!

    How's Carbon in terms of memory use and battery implications?

    Carbon doesn't run in the background, you 'pull' tweets when you want to see them and you can swipe down with two fingers to get to current tweets if you don't want to bother with your timeline from yesterday or three days ago. Also supports multiple accounts/timelines.

    Falcon PRO by far. Tried Carbon and the reg twitter, but Falcon blows them out of the water. But........ If you can't get Falcon Carbon is the next best thing.

    I think I'll try Carbon again. TweetCaster was really slow and was also eating a lot of battery and trying to access my location even though I unchecked that option.

    Well, I spoke too soon...from the Carbon G+ site:

    M.Saleh Esmaeili originally shared:
    As they say, it's not what happens but how you react and handle it.
    So the inevitable at Twitter API side happened to +Carbon for Android . We all knew it was going to happen, we just didn't know when.

    Twitter just closed the door on Carbon using the API.

    Do any of these clients handle @replies and conversations the same way the official app does? If there's one thing I really like about the official app, it's how it handles conversations, but I couldn't find any third party clients that do it the same way.

    My earlier post re the Twitter API being closed was in reaction to Carbon not updating or posting tweets, but later saw their tweet that it was a short term issue on the twitter side:

    Carbon for Android @CarbonAndroid
    There was a problem on Twitter side, nothing to do with tokens or our API access. just a general outage at Twitter. Systems are all back now.

    I don't get how some of the apps like Carbon and Falcon Pro have token limits but ones like Tweetcaster and Seesmic, which are also popular, don't have any limits...

    I've got Carbon on my One X, I'll be putting it on my Moto X when it gets here, as long as it still works.

    My understanding is that because some apps like Tweetcaster and Seesmic were around before Twitter implemented the Token API, they started out with their entire userbase getting tokens on top of whatever token limits Twitter set for them, so they ended up with many more tokens than newer apps like Carbon or Falcon.

    Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    Used Tweetcaster for the longest time...great app, until it lags up or force closes which seems to happen more frequently recently...now im on Carbon...Im really liking the UI and flow of Carbon its sexy and dark... much better than the official Twitter app which I also use occasionally...

    I think you were right on with Tweedle. Though thats because I like the card look, other options might be better in the department your looking for, not sure.
