While Safari is a perfectly acceptable way to browse Twitter on your iPad, that doesn't mean it's the best experience. For that there are native Twitter apps. Whether you're a casual tweeter who just wants to follow their favorite celebs or a veteran wanting to manage lists and mute filters, there's an iPad Twitter app for you. Here are my current favorites and who I think they're best suited for...

Twitter for iOS received a major update today, moving to version 6.0 with a refreshed design and some new tricks.
