There are tons of Twitter clients in the iTunes App Store, and Apple has recently gone even further by integrating the social networking platform into its iOS mobile software. But if you’re looking for style and functionality, you can’t get much better than Tweetbot.

Tweetbot’s tag line reads, “A Twitter Client with Personality,” and it’s true. This app’s quirky but useful features make this the best Twitter app for iPhone (in our humble opinion). Everything with this Twitter app is cool—from the fun sound effects to the oh-so-handy ability to follow a Twitter conversation just by clicking on a tweet. You can also “favorite” a tweet, which is then housed within one of Tweetbot’s customizable tabs.

The Twitter client includes all the features you’re used to seeing on other clients such as the ability to tweet photos, videos and links. But where it really excels is in its easy-to-use, great-looking interface. The app uses gesture controls and even lets you customize them to get it working exactly the way you want. You can also save tweets as drafts and link Tweetbot into other handy apps, like Instapaper. So if you found a link to an article that you want to dive into later, you can simply save it in an organized system for later. 

There’s really not anything to complain about with Tweetbot. It feels futuristic and highly responsive, and it makes reading and updating Twitter a comfortable, functional experience.
