There are a variety of third-party Twitter apps on the Google Play Store but, among all of them, only one has been granted a seat on my Android phone. I’m not really a Twitter fan, nor am I a hardcore Twitter user who likes to keep my account updated 24/7. A Twitter app that is simple, clean, and has all the basic functions is good for me. If you’re like me, then you will love using the Tweedle for Twitter app on your Android phone. It’s a simple and elegant Twitter client app.
The Tweedle for Twitter app is just like any third-party app for Twitter. With numerous Twitter apps around, this app was able to capture my attention, not with its extended [...]
The Internet is bustling with information. Everything you could ever need is right at your fingertips, as well as the power to share our own findings. A number of websites already exist for sharing and discovering content.
Facebook is one way to discover new things, but you’d need to sift through your friends’ status updates. There’s also Tumblr but that can quickly get overwhelming as people you follow share anything and everything. Then there’s Twitter, which allows you to make 140-character updates about what you’re doing, thinking, or watching. Those aren’t the only social media and network sites out there. Being able to keep up [...]

Developed by HappyDr0id, TweetLine is also among these third-party apps with added or extra capabilities. Although TweetLine is still in its testing version, the app already has the essential components and extra capabilities for Twitter fans.
TweetLine’s features [...]
Mobile devices have made communication ubiquitous and persistent. With our mobile devices essentially tethered to our analog lives, we text, call, chat and email almost everywhere. Case in point: have you ever answered a call while in the shower? Perhaps if you’re anticipating an important call or message, you won’t find this so strange.
But it’s this very attitude that can sometimes cause trouble. What if you’re calling your boss at an inopportune moment? Or perhaps you’re sending a message to someone in a different time zone, and she can’t answer because it’s 3 AM. A simple Android app can help add some context to your [...]
The Carbon Twitter client has been very appreciated on the defunct WebOS platform, and has also made the jump to Windows Phone. We’ve been hearing for a few months now about an Carbon for Android app that is in the works, and today we finally have some good news for all you Twitter maniacs out there.
In a post on Google Plus, Carbon for Android developers Dots & Lines have announced that the Twitter client will launch on July 22, and it will come for free. No, this won’t be an ad-supported app (the Carbon team hates them as much as you do), but a completely free, premium app.
How generous of Dots & Lines, you might say. Well, the decision to make Carbon [...]

Samsung is apparently not happy to be one of the most important electronic device makers on the planet, without having its own social network, and it looks like the company is already working on such a project, dubbed internally “Samsung Facebook.”
The Korea Times reports that Samsung will launch its yet unnamed social network at some point in the first quarter of 2013, and that the product is meant to work across a variety of devices, made by Samsung and by other companies:
To allow users to access the social networking service from anywhere, at anytime and on any device, Samsung plans to integrate it with Amazon’s cloud computing [...]
Using an Android tablet to browse social media can be very convenient, especially when you’d like to get a complete view of your feed. As nice as that sounds, sometimes developers don’t optimize their apps to take full advantage of all that sweet screen real estate.

The app utilizes the full screen of your tablet to provide scrolling timelines of Tweets. By swiping right and left, you can view all recent tweets from those you follow, as well as tweets of your own. You can quickly [...]
