As I have always reiterated in my Twitter for Teachers section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, Twitter is only powerful when combined with third party tools. There is definitely a myriad of interesting web applications that can render your Tweeting experience better and way more enjoyable and I have reviewed many of them in the section mentioned earlier but the best and most important of them all, in my personal view, is Tweetdeck. I personally can not imagine using Twitter without Tweetdeck.
However, today I am sharing with you a set of some useful Twitter iPad apps that you might probably have never heard of, or at least some of them will be new to you. All thanks go back to Appaddictive where I have learned about some of them. Enjoy
