On my Android phone I have both the official Twitter client and Twidroid installed. If they had more or less the same functionailty and useability I would prefer to use the official client. However I only use Twidroid, because Twitter's official app is inferior. I could explain why in detail if anyone is interested, but it's not a subtle matter, it's gross and obvious.
Twitter apparently believes that no one should bother making a plain old timeline-displaying client because Twitter's official ones are all you need. And yet even with Twidroid's prior example to copy from, Twitter's official Android client is still unusable. I say this one example shows that the new policy Ryan posted is at best premature. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk
