10 Best Twitter Mobile Apps
Let's take a look at some of the best Twitter mobile apps to help you get the most out of using Twitter.
Why we love Tweetbot:
When managing Twitter from your mobile device, many of the mobile apps that are available are subpar and often require you to use multiple apps for managing different aspects of your Twitter account. For example, one for tweeting, another for measuring your Twitter metrics. Not Tweetbot though.
Tweetbot is a powerful, feature-rich Twitter mobile app that makes using Twitter extremely easy.
In addition to being able to send out tweets and follow other conversations on Twitter, Tweetbot also includes the ability to mute tweets based on users, hashtags, tweet sources and so on.
This way if someone is tweeting too often, you can turn them off for a specific period of time.
Another great feature for Tweetbot is that you can view analytics as well. This way you can see how well your tweets are performing and how many new Twitter followers you've adde that day.
Tweetbot is a paid Twitter mobile app; however, it's well worth it because of all of the useful features they include.
2. Twitterific 5
Why we love Twitterific:
Twitterific is an award-winning Twitter client.
Overall, it is very similar to Tweetbot. You can view your recent tweets, track likes, retweets and more.
With Twitterific, you can also use gestures to make composing and sending tweets easier.
They also include Apple Watch support as well so that you can keep up with new followers, unread tweets, likes and more from your wrist.
Although it's a free app, Twitterific requires in-app purchases to remove ads and to add push notifications.
Why we love Twitshot:
Twitshot is a neat Twitter mobile app.
Often when you go to tweet out a link to an article, it can be tricky trying to save an image to include in your tweet.
With Twitshot, simply copy the URL to an article you want to tweet.
When you launch Twitshot, you'll be prompted to create a tweet except the tweet will include a featured image from the URL you copied to your clipboard.
By including visuals in your tweets, you can help them standout more for your Twitter followers.
Why we love TweetLibs:
If you're looking for the best Twitter mobile apps, they don't all have to be tools to manage your Twitter streams.
TweetLibs is unique because you can use it to quickly build advanced search queries for Twitter.
Once you've created a search query, you can save it for use later on.
Here are some of the options you can choose from in TweetLibs.
- Main search term
- “Or” search term
- Term to exclude
- The person tweets were sent to
- Location tweets were sent from (or near)
- Attitude of the tweet (positive or negative)
- Is the tweet asking a question?
- Show only tweets with links, images, videos or news
- Include or exclude retweets
- Find either recent or popular tweets (or both)
TweetLibs is available as a free app; however, if you would like to remove ads, it will run you $0.99.
Why we love AgoraPulse:
AgoraPulse is a powerful social media management tool that can help with your community management.
Not only can you use it to manage your Twitter account in less than 15 minutes per day, it can also help you manage Facebook and Instagram.
With AgoraPulse, you can quickly review your latest tweets and even publish them across your Facebook and Twitter social media channels right from your mobile device.
While their mobile app is free, you will need to be an AgoraPulse customer in order to use their services.
Fortunately, they offer a free trial of AgoraPulse so you can see how well it works for your business.
Why we love Hootsuite:
One of the best Twitter mobile apps for managing and scheduling tweets is HootSuite.
Hootsuite is a complete solution that let's you view Twitter streams, schedule tweets, create streams to help you track Twitter hashtags and campaigns and more.
In addition, you can also use Hootsuite to schedule posts to Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn right from your mobile device.
Hootsuite also offers a desktop tool as well to help with your social media management.
With Hootsuite, you can sign-up for free; however, you're limited to the number of social media channels you can connect.
If you're new to Hootsuite, they also offer a free 3-day trial of Hootsuite.
Overall, Hootsuite is a tool we recommend to every business owner or social media marketer who is responsible for managing multiple Twitter accounts because it makes it a lot easier to keep up with.
Another useful mobile app for managing Twitter is Plume.
Why we love Plume for Twitter:
Plume is an Android app that offers a lot of useful features such as:
- Manage multiple twitter accounts
- Lockscreen widget (Android 4.2+)
- Mute twitter users, word or applications
- Post to a Facebook timeline
- Live-streaming in app
- Preview pictures in timeline using pinch to zoom
- Twitter geotagging
- Autocomplete Twitter hashtags and usernames
- Bit.ly support for your URLs
- And more…
Plums is a free Twitter mobile app for Android devices.
8. UberSocial for Twitter
Why we love UbserSocial for Twitter:
UberSocial for Twitter is another complete Twitter management tool.
You can easily connect and manage multiple Twitter accounts from UberSocial.
Hyperlinks, Twitter usernames and hashtags are clickable, helping save you time.
They've also included a nifty “inner circle” feature that let's you customize your in-crowd so you just see their tweets.
UbserSocial for Twitter is a free app; however, you can unlock their Pro version which provides the inline viewing of photos and videos and more.

9. Echofon for Twitter
Why we love Echofon for Twitter:
If you're looking for one of the fastest Twitter mobile apps, try Echofon for Twitter.
You can mute selected users, set quiet mode for times when you don't want to be disturbed by tweets and use a read-later service such as Pocket to save links you find on Twitter for later.
Another useful feature of Echofon for Twitter is that they include native push from Twitter meaning you'll get notified faster.
Echofon for Twitter is a free app that can be upgraded to the pro version to remove ads.
Why we love Twitter:
No list of the best Twitter mobile apps would be complete without mentioning the official Twitter app.
The Twitter mobile app let's you manage a single Twitter account. You can also access Periscope streams.
Another very useful feature to help you keep up with conversations on Twitter is Twitter Moments.
If you need to manage multiple Twitter accounts, you should check out Tweetbot, Hootsuite or AgoraPulse as they are more robust mobile apps.
Remember though, the official Twitter app is free, while the others are paid apps that offer additional functionality.
Two apps that didn't make the list of the best Twitter mobile apps, but should be mentioned because they're worth checking out were TweetCaster and TweetList.
TweetCaster is another all-in-one Twitter management tool that looks beautiful.
We didn't include it in our list because although it's free, there are a lot of additional in-app purchases such as upgrading to the pro version to remove ads and such and various theme packs you can add. The total cost of this app would put it above some of the best apps such as Tweetbot.
TweetList is a fast Twitter client.
While it's great for managing Twitter lists, the app hasn't been updated in a while so you may want to use another Twitter mobile app if you need additional functionality.
Over to You
As you can see, there are a lot of great apps to choose from when looking for the best Twitter mobile apps.
When trying to decide which Twitter app to use, I recommend trying different ones as they all have unique features. For example, I started out using the official Twitter mobile app, but switched to Tweetbot as my primary Twitter app because it included features that I needed.
If you are not a heavy Twitter user, you might prefer using the main Twitter app to help you keep up with conversations and upgrade to another app as the needs of your business change.
Besides the Twitter mobile apps that I mentioned, are you currently using any other apps to manage your Twitter account?
If you're using another Twitter tool, we would love to hear which one.
