If you were to ask any of the webOS faithful what they used their devices for the most you would more than likely hear Twitter from a fistful of them. Outside of our forums here at webOS Nation, Twitter is how most of us keep in touch with one another. We debate, give virtual high fives, discover cool new apps, and keep track of news with Twitter. To say that is important to us would be understating just how much we depend on the popular micro-blogging service.
Once upon a time the webOS landscape was full of third party Twitter clients. We never let a little thing like not having an official app stop us because at any given moment we had a multitude of choices to keep us tweeting 'till our hearts content. Over time interest in webOS dwindled and many developers either pulled their apps or abandoned them altogether. The most recent loss was developing house dots and lines pulling their powerhouse Twitter clients Carbon and Graphite.
After the initial shock of loosing two of the greatest Twitter apps to ever grace our platform we composed ourselves and ventured off to the App Catalog to see what we could find. This journey turned out to be quite an eye opener for us as it was brought to our attention that good Twitter apps are hard to come by on webOS these days. A quick search of the App Catalog will bring you a fistful of results however with a little research we discovered many of these apps have been rendered useless by Twitter's various API changes over the years.
So in the spirit of saving our readers time and money we decided to put together a quick roundup of great Twitter apps. It should be noted that this list contains apps that work as advertised and can be found in the App Catalog. This article is also not intended to compare these apps as we just want to give our readers a quick heads up on what options they have available.
