Twitter acquires Tweetie!

An Official Twitter App for BlackBerry was recently introduced by twitter. But Twitter doesn’t have any official native app for other mobiles and iPhone users yet, for its highly pronounced micro blogging service ‘Twitter’. This wait will now be over as twitter has now acquired the popular twitter client or app ‘Tweetie’.

Tweetie which currently costs $2.99 will be renamed to ‘Twitter for iPhone’ and made as a free app. Here is the official blog post made by twitter:

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve entered into an agreement with Atebits (aka Loren Brichter) to acquire Tweetie, a leading iPhone Twitter client. Tweetie will be renamed Twitter for iPhone and made free (currently $2.99) in the iTunes AppStore in the coming weeks. Loren will become a key member of our mobile team that is already having huge impact with device makers and service providers around the world. Loren’s work won the 2009 Apple Design Award and we will eventually launch Twitter for iPad with his help.

Lets see when we can get this amazing app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices.
