Best Twitter client apps for the iPhone and the iPad

Ah, Twitter, the so-called “SMS of the Internet”! Being one of the most popular microblogging social networks, Twitter proves that you don't need more than 140 characters to express yourself thoroughly – all it takes is a simple tweet. Each second, roughly 7,000 tweets (!) are being tweeted between the users of the hashtag-centric social network, which means that around 500 million tweets are being created every day. If that does not impress you, then nothing will!
A majority of these are being tweeted by users that sport a mobile device, and it is highly likely that a great percentage of these devices are being powered by Cupertino's mobile OS. Although an official Twitter app can be download for free from Apple's App Store, there are a ton of 3rd-party ones, which offer more features and functionalities than the regular Twitter client. While we can't cover all of them, we've made a curated selection of some of the most popular, useful, and noteworthy ones. Well, frankly said, a large portion of the apps that have comfortably made their way to our pick below look pretty similar to each other, but then again, it's the features under the hood and the on-board options that truly make a difference.

If your favorite Twitter client for iOS isn't listed below, feel free to share it with us in the comments section. Without further ado, let's go ahead and check out some of the most noteworthy Twitter clients for the iPhone and the iPad!

Note: The apps below are sorted in no particular order.

You would still need a token.

I tried falconpro, but now using Talon since two days, as falcon was using lots of RAM and was also taking more space on my storage........ For now talon is working fine....... And there is simple workaround for getting token or activating falcon pro, but it was great app. hope talon will work fine for long time, otherwise i would have to go back to falconpro.........
