This Wednesday at Twitter's Chirp Conference, CEO Evan Williams announced that Twitter would be coming out with an official Twitter application for Android devices. The company appears to be launching a platform-wide campaign to have uniform "Official Twitter Apps" for all devices. "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," Williams said.
Recently, Twitter bought AteBits, the company that developed Tweetie, one of the most popular Twitter apps for the iPhone. Twitter has also partnered with RIM to develop the official Twitter app for Blackberry, which is now in public beta release. The big question on the minds of those who care is: will the company develop the app themselves, partner with Google (like they did with RIM), or purchase an already existing App (like they did with Tweetie) in order to create the uniformity among platforms they are striving for?
Andrew Kameka of Androinica seems to think that Twitter will acquire either Twidroid or TweetsRide and rename one of them as the official Twitter app for Android. What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
