Apple has been busy pushing its official Twitter clients for mobile platforms including iOS, Android, and Blackberry — but that hasn’t stopped third party developers from creating their own Twitter apps. The blogosphere and Twittersphere is abuzz today with the news that a new app called TweetBot takes the whole Twitter experience to a new level.

The app is attractive and choc full of features for power users. If you’re not a power user, you might want to stick with Twitters’ free app since [itunes link=”″ title=”tweetbot” text=”TweetBot will set you back $1.99″]. But here’s what you get for the price:

  • Support for multiple accounts
  • Gesture-based controls
  • Support for Twitter lists
  • Customizable tab bar
  • Ability to post tweets, photos, and video in the background (to keep browsing after you’ve clicked send instead of watching the app think)
  • Attractive graphics and sound effects for alerts
  • Long list of URL shorteners and sites for sharing photos and videos

TweetBot is available from the App Store [itunes link=”″ title=”tweetbot” text=”for $1.99″].
