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]

What is Twitter? I am still not sure I fully understand it. Is it just a status update log? Like what you type in Facebook? Like a status in a chat app? Am I grasping what it actually is here or is there more to it that I don't get.

This is not meant to be sarcastic. I really don't know!
