Twitter Launches Official Android Client

Interesting that it doesn’t look anything at all like Tweetie — the official Twitter clients for iPhone and Android thus don’t look anything alike. (Unless they plan to remake Tweetie to look like this Android app, which would only happen over Loren Brichter’s dead body.)

Also interesting: the Android app requires OS 2.1, which, according to Google’s own numbers, is only installed on 27 percent of actively-used Android handsets.
