Twitter for iPhone (Tweetie 3.0) is coming... now-ish

Twitter for iPhone update available

Twitter for iPhone, aka Tweetie 3.0, is showing as an available update now in iTunes, though the link currently leads to an "application unavailable" popup. We take this to mean that, yes, Tweetie 2.0 was pulled from the iTunes App Store last night because the newly rebranded version is on its way... now-ish.

How long it takes for now-ish to become now depends on entirely on the wanton tease that is iTunes' international propagation system. If/when you manage to grab it, let us know in comments and tell us what you think. (Especially if you spot any nifty new features!)

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Right now mines just sitting in the App Update category but won't let me update it, says not available in US iTunes store then leads to a dead link

@jasonbrown28 says:

When is the real update going to be available? I don't see a updae in my iTunes

jonomacdono says:

Anyone know if there is going to be ads in it? If there are, I think I'll be sticking with Tweetie 2.0

Chirayu says:

nothing in the US store. Twitter better not have any freaking ads, I paid for Tweetie

Can anyone provide a link to the U.S. store (even if it's non-functional)?

Fererigno says:

beta 4 is ready...come on Rene !!!

Felix ramos says:

i don't even see it in my AppStore. and I'm the the US. I'm sure the update will come within the next few hours. hopefully.

Vincent says:

Unavailable in the Canadian AppStore :(

CPFB says:

Impatiently checking the App Store (US)....

Brandon says:

In all honesty - the update feels rushed. They didn't even update the user manual to replace tweetie with Twitter. No new features really. Still waiting for push. Bummed.

(Copy of) Dev says:

Still do not see it in the US, but the Japanese App Store has it:

therealjjohnson says:

K nakaneezee says:

I see it in the US App Store, but when I click on it, it says not available...WTF??...

Knakaneezee says:

Nevermind. It's working now!

Robert says:

I can download it via iTunes on the computer but not through the iPhone

Matt says:

If you follow the link provided from your phone it will work.

Jason says:

Be careful when updating, you will lose all accounts, searches, etc and will have to set them up again.

igorsky says:

Aside from a few cosmetics pretty much the same thing. Doesn't yet seem to have ads, for those who were concerned.

Mike j says:

It's out now ain't much different still doesnt have push

Mrjr says:

It's not even working for me.

Sam Irizarry says:

It's available now in the U.S. Only one theme though.

tsb3 says:

no push, what a joke, 2010 and technology still sucks

OmariJames says:

this app isn't affiliated with apple right ? its not going to be a standard app in 4.0 ?
