    So who can talk to Twitter Inc. to just update the official Twitter app for Windows Phone for us? This is the only app I (and not only me) use since most of the ones out there are being sold and we don't use a lot of credit cards in my area so I stick to free stuff.

    I love using the official Twitter app but have come to notice that it's lacking a lot of features and has a lot of bugs that needs to be addressed. Was wishing for updates that never came to fix these problems and I know there are very important people here that I wish to plead if they know any of the developers or responsible for this app to please help some of us who are still using this app by bringing out an update to make us happy.

    The facebook app was in the same situation but not anymore since they are feeding us with a lot of beautifull UI updates and we are even expecting an update from them.
    So please anyone out there to talk to developers of the official Twitter app to please overhaul their app for some of us who are still fans?
    Thanks.

    In the meantime there are free twitter clients like Mehdoh, Peregrine and others that are free with ads like Rowi, motweets. The are much better than the official client, give them a try if you can.

    I know they talked about the twitter app in a pod cast a while ago ,

    I think there is a reason its not *better* or it dint get the update yet. something to do with lack of API access. not sure , id have to go find it ( its like 3-4 podcast ago)

    There is the people hub. It is a basic twitter type of app. You can filter it so that only twitter shows :)

    I work just across Twitter and I have a few friends there. I will try to talk with them, but all of my friends are in junior positions, so please don't expect any good results out of my conversations :)

    People Hub will link with Twitter and it's FREE.

    Rowi is outstanding and the ad-supported version is FREE.
    The paid version is 3 bucks and worth every penny.

    People hub is very limited, shows tweets to some extent, can't go down, down and down like with a twitter app.

    I use Carbon. They have a "trial" version. Not sure exactly what the restrictions are since I paid for it though. A lot of people swear by Rowi since it's last major update too.

    Rowi is my favorite Twitter app.

    In addition to the other suggestions, there's also Carbon and Tweetcaster you might try.

    You have to hand it to Twitter, it is one of the few services that provides a full-featured API. Because of that, I'm not too worried about the official client and I'd imagine Twitter isn't extremely concerned either. Those who need more than baseline functionality can get one of the competent alternatives.

    Contrast with other services, like Facebook and Tumblr. I don't think a third-party Facebook app exists (apps loading the mobile site don't count). Tumblr does provide an API but it isn't full featured - you can't add a source to your posts, and there doesn't seem to be documented WYSIWYG editing.
