The official Twitter for iPad -- technically a universal binary for both iPhone and iPad -- has just hit the iTunes App Store. Formerly known as Tweetie, the app was under development by Atebits and Loren Brichter before getting bought up by Twitter, and after a brief transitional delay, it's finally here.

How is it? Different. Stacked. Brichter certainly didn't simply scale up the Twitter for iPhone UI. This is all new in both look and approach. I'm going to try it out for a while before forming any opinions (hit me up @reneritchie if you want to try it with me) but take a look at the screenshots below for an idea.

If you're trying it already, let me know your thoughts.
