Twitter Android App now Available

Twitter has announced their new Twitter for Android application. The new app brings a number of features to the Android OS which includes support for Eclairs Quick Contact bar as well as the ability to tweet from the Gallery app.

There is a downside to the app though as it doesn’t support earlier versions of the Android OS. You’ll need Android 2.1 to run it.

From what we understand, Twitter worked closely with Google [GOOG] on this application. Twitter have also contributed the code to Android’s trunk making it open source in the near future. Also a number of API’s have also been created allowing developers to integrate twitter in to their own applications.

The screenshots show quite an impressive application that has a lot of potential.

If you are running 2.1 you can grab it from the Android Market now.

More details can be found on the Twitter blog.
