6 Great Twitter Apps for Android
Unlike Facebook, which was created primarily for the desktop and laptop users, Twitter has always been meant for the people who like to participate in social networking while they are on the move. Initially when the mobile OS platforms were not as developed as they are today, you were able to send text messages to Twitter and they would be posted as tweets on your profile. Nowadays, mobile apps are also as sophisticated as their desktop counterparts and they offer many features which can make your social networking life significantly easier. In this article we will list a number of Twitter apps for Android which we consider to be great replacements for the website version of this service. There is also an official Twitter App for Android but we are not going to list it as it offers limited features and nearly every user knows about it.
