App Advice notes that Tweetie 2 has disappeared from the App Store, suggesting that a release of the official Twitter iPhone application may be right around the corner.

Twitter last month acquired Tweetie and has been planning to rebrand it as the company's official Twitter application. At the time of its acquisition, the application was updated with an easter egg announcing the forthcoming change, and its App Store description saw the addition of a note regarding its future.
Tweetie will soon be Twitter for iPhone - and it will be free! So you might want to hold off on buying Tweetie 2 for now - look for the update soon!
With Tweetie 2's disappearance from the App Store, it appears that the change may be coming as soon as later today.

my one question

Will it be an update to Tweetie 2 or a separate app?

I'd like to have the option to keep Tweetie and not be bothered with an update badge on the app store icon.

On reading the article it suggests that it'll be rebranded as "Twitter" itself......

In all fairness i was really surprised that there wasn't a "Twitter" app right from the get go..... a little slow from the Twits.... :p

I think it will be an update and re brandished as just Twitter under the icon.

it should be free and I hope the new app is released soon becuz that casino thing in the recent update is annoying as hell.

I can't wait for Tweetie 2 to become free!
I've been using the iPhone version of Tweetie forever because it has a beautiful interface compared to other Twitter apps.

I'm hoping it's a brand new app w/ iAds. I'll just skip it and keep tweetie2. I've paid for both 1 and 2 and like not having ads (and also feel shafted that I had to pay twice). I'd rather also not have a dumb update badge on my App Store icon.

Hopefully its better than the droid's version of twitters official app from what I hear its crap.

on a Side note i've been using Simply Tweet 3.1 push notification Landscape list geotag etc not free but its deffintly great for what its worth.

I'm a big Twittelator Pro fan but I liked Tweetie a lot too, I hope he's adding some features whilst it's getting rebranded.
