    iPhone and twitter users rejoice! Mobile tweeting is a very popular way (especially for iPhone users) to share what you’re up to. Luckily, there are many easy ways to access this social networking platform on your iPhone. Here are our picks for the top 3 twitter apps for iPhone. The best part is that they’re all free!

    Tweetdeck

    Tweetdeck

    Price: Free

    Tweetdeck is definitely our pick for the best iPhone twitter app. It has a great column layout with a easy-to-use and accessible menu on the bottom of the screen. You can go between feeds with ease. There are columns for people you follow, mentions, and direct messages. You can also add custom columns for multiple twitter accounts and following specific lists.

    Echofon

    Echofon

    Price: $4.99 for PRO (Free version available)

    Echofon is fast (huge emphasis on fast!) and easy to use. It’s extremely simple with a navigational menu across the bottom of the screen – but it lacks a URL shortener. Since it is so clean and simple, it is perfect for the beginner twitter user. It is very similar to Twitter for iPhone, but it is better since it is easier to use and faster, with the same functionality.

    Twitterrific

    Twitterrific

    Price: Free

    Twitterrific is undoubtedly an easy-to-use tool that exclusively works for iPad and iPhone. In 2008, it received the Apple Design Award for "Best iPhone Social Networking Application," and in 2010, it won the App Gems Award from MacWorld for "Twitter Client of the Year." The best part of Twitterrific is that it is easy to use and extremely accessible. In one menu, you have access to all tweets, mentions, messages, favorites, searches, lists, and trends. You can change the themes and upload media files as well. However, the update sometimes lags, and you have to toggle between streams instead of a navigation bar.
