Using the Official Twitter App

Whether you use the free, official Twitter app on an iPhone or iPad, you'll discover this app offers all of the features and tools you'll need to efficiently manage your Twitter account(s) while on the go.

The app allows you to attach photos and your location to an outgoing tweet, and/or manually enter website URLs you'd like to share. You can also choose which account you send your tweet from (if you're managing several from the same iOS device).

The Twitter app (shown in Figure 4) works with a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi Internet connection, and features a simple but robust interface that easily allows you to view your Twitter timeline, respond to messages, or re-tweet messages. Or, using the app's command icons/menu options (displayed at the bottom of the iPhone's screen, or in the left column on the iPad), you can quickly find mentions of your username, read and respond to private messages, manage your lists, update your profile, follow trending topics, or perform a search.
