Like a scene out of Hitchcock’s cinematic classic, the birds at Twitter have swooped in for the kill, this time taking aim at the team at Posterous. While there’s no blood and carnage quite yet, the fate of the popular Posterous Spaces is a question mark.
If you’ve happened to watch Wednesday’s keynote on Apple’s website, you may have noticed a curious thing that CEO Tim Cook did early on -- he stopped the show for a moment to get a few swift kicks in the head to Android’s Twitter app, which he dismissed as simply a “blown-up smartphone app.”
While it’s easy to find amazing deals on most every aspect of our lives thanks to the internet, discovering new apps can be a challenge -- and discovering App Store deals can be downright impossible. Enter Iddiction, Inc., whose new App-o-Day service is being billed as “the Groupon for apps.”
Monday has been good to iPad users who create their own content -- first Adobe releases Photoshop Touch for still images, and now Vimeo’s app hits version 2.0 with a universal build for native iPad support for watching, managing, downloading and sharing your videos with others.
Roar! OS X Lion, we hardly knew you. Apple has announced a new version of Mac OS X that will debut this summer, just a year after Lion. It’s called Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and it continues the theme of bringing iOS features “back to the Mac” in a very big way.
With so many apps now available in the App Store, it’s not often that one comes along that makes everyone swoon over it.

At any rate, we've got that and a few other spicy bits for you to chew on in this week's muy caliente roundup.
When it comes to Twitter clients, everyone has a favorite -- and much to the company’s chagrin, rarely does it seem to be its own free apps. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of excellent third-party apps, and iOS users in particular seem to have no problem forking over hard-earned money for them. Among the best is Tweetbot, billed as “a Twitter client with personality.” This week, developer Tapbots LLC gave Twitter fans a one-two punch in the form of a major version 2.0 update to the iPhone and iPod touch app, as well as a native iPad app that users have been clamoring for.
There's no denying that Twitter's one of the easiest platforms for sharing your thoughts. As such, there are a flurry of featured-packed apps for both Mac and iOS that let you use Twitter to post your blurbs, share your photos, and let everyone know where you're hanging out. Here are five of our favorite Twitter clients.
