Ever since Apple opened up App store for public, we have seen every kind of application making its mark there. I was recently reading a quote some Apple official that they pretty much have all kind of applications that somebody will be looking for, today in App store.

Twitter iPhone applications are one of the most downloaded apps today and with Twitter's popularity ever increasing, we are seeing lots of new apps getting into the app store everyday. I have categorized this into two, free and paid. Surprisingly none of these free twitter client apps feature in the top 100 list of Appstore.The order of these listing is random and is not based on any rating or ranking.I also thought to include some web clients for Twitter (though its very rare to see people using web clients in iPhone, which was so popular in the 2G days)
