Twitterrific, the elegant Iconfactory Twitter client for iPhone and iPad, has been updated to support one of their most requested features -- push notifications. Currently in beta, users are being added to Twitterrific's push system in batches of 1,000 to make sure servers stay up and the experience remains positive for everyone. 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.)

Also in version 5.2, user banners have been added to profile pages, discussions are now shareable via email or storify, Doplr gets thumb-nailed, and the usual bevy of improvements, additions, and fixes.

I've been using the push notifications for roughly a day now and they've been working really well. In addition to the message itself, the Iconfactory has included small icons at the beginning of the notification to help you quickly, easily differentiate between mentions, direct messages, re-tweets, favorites, and others.

You can grab the update now, and If you're not using Twitterrific yet, check it out and let me know what you think.
