Some Twitter App News For The New Week

On May 11, 2009

A quick look at the number of Twitter clients available on the iPhone might lead one to conclude that it is the dominant form of communication these days.

Then again, considering that an astounding 60% of new Twitterers stopped tweeting within a month, if it is THE form of communication… we’re in trouble.

Never-the-less, there are Twitter clients everywhere you look. Last week Twittelator Pro got updated AGAIN and Twitterific was updated to version 2.0.

And while these are among the biggees, they are, by no means, the only ones making app news this weekend.
