Twitter Buys Tweetie: Best Twitter App for the iPhone Goes Free

Woah! Apparently Twitter has snatched up the company behind popular desktop and iPhone Twitter client Tweetie. Twitter intends to "offer [the iPhone app] for free and rename it Twitter for iPhone."

We all like free things, right? Not to mention that we'll finally get a Tweetie Twitter app for the iPad, too.

I do wonder when other mobile operating systems will get an official app as well, since Twitter has already helped create an official BlackBerry app and Tweetie will let them cover the iPhone market. [NYT via Twitter]
