Until today, Android users have been limited to using third-party Twitter apps. Seesmic and Twidroid were the two most popular apps. They were often slow and clunky to the point of requiring new versions once per week.

Today, Android users finally have an official Twitter app made by the folks at Twitter. The interface for the new app is quick and smooth. Menus are easier to find. There is also a feature where you can integrate data with your Contacts. The animated bird at the bottom of the screen is a nice touch also.

Bad news for G1 owners and owners of other phones not running Android 2.1 though. Those users won’t be able to enjoy the new Twitter app unfortunately for now.
