Twitter for iOS received a major update today, moving to version 6.0 with a refreshed design and some new tricks. The two major changes in the design are the new navigation bar and addition of the Activity and Discover timelines, accessed by swiping through the Timelines tab. Direct messages have also been moved to the navigation bar for easy, one-tap access from anywhere in the app.
Tweetly for iPhone is a new Twitter client for iPhone that focuses on providing a streamline user experience more than it focuses on containing every feature you could possibly cram into one client. For those that take and share a lot of photos, not only can you easily share your pictures, but edit them too.
Tweetbot 3.2 is now available, adding some enhancements, as well as the long-awaited night theme. Night theme turns all of the white elements of Tweetbot's UI dark gray. You can turn the theme on manually or set Tweetbot to turn it on automatically based on your screen brightness in the Display section of the app's settings.
Tweetbot 3.1 is out, adding some important features to Tweetbot, including using lists as timeline, quick actions, and independent text sizing. To use one of your lists as your timeline, first make sure that Tweetbot has loaded your lists at least once. Then, in the timeline view, tap and hold on the timline name at the top of the screen. Choose your desired list from the drop-down menu that appears.
When iOS 7 was announced, one of the most frequent questions in the Apple design and development community immediately became - what will Tweetbot do? The thing about Tweetbot, and all of Tapbot's apps, was the way they looked. The personality. That was achieved through heavy, textured design. And iOS 7 was the opposite of that. All the personality was in the physics. And that's just where it's gone in Tweetbot 3 as well.
Tweet7 is a new Twitter client by Halcyon Mobile, the makers of finance and budget app Dollarbird. With transparent menus, matching fonts, and a completely gesture driven interface, no space is wasted on menus and buttons.

If you don't get into the push beta immediately, just try again in a few days. (You can find it in the Settings section.)
