Twitter Adds Push Notifications for Its Official iPhone Client

But it’s only for its own official client — third-party Twitter clients that want push notifications need to run their own servers. (That’s what Boxcar and Notifo have done for a while now.)

In other news, the Twitter iPad app is much improved over its initial release. It’s the same basic multi-panel slide-to-the-left premise, but the interaction is much improved — it’s easier to flip your way back to the “root”, and a selected tweet no longer stays pinned to the top of the list as you scroll down.
