Twitter Coming to iPad “Eventually”(copy)

The official Twitter Blog has announced that Twitter has entered into an agreement with Atebits to acquire Tweetie, the iPhone Twitter client, and that it will now be called Twitter for iPhone. The app will also now be available for free, instead of the current price of $2.99. As far as the iPad is concerned, the blog states that Tweetie creator Loren Brichter, who won the 2009 Apple Design Award, is to become a “key member” of Twitter’s mobile team, and will help them to “eventually” launch Twitter for iPad. Here’s a quote from the blog that makes interesting reading:

“As we work to provide the best possible Twitter experience on all of the major mobile platforms, momentum will increase dramatically. Millions more active, engaged, mobile users means more opportunities for all of us. Developers, services, and publishers will be able to leverage the Twitter iPhone and iPad applications to create additional innovative tools and integrations for users. We’ll have more specific information on this once Loren is officially on board.”
