Tweetie bought by TwitterApr 12 2010

Tweetie, my favorite Twitter iPhone app, has been purchased by Twitter; they'll be releasing Twitter-branded versions soon. As Gruber says:

Here's to hoping that Twitter doesn't fuck Tweetie up like Brizzly did to Birdfeed.

That is, Tweetie was developed as a what's-best-for-the-user app. I'm hoping not, but a Twitter-brand app may be designed primarily as a what's-best-for-Twitter-the-company app...which is not necessaily a good thing.
