The first great Twitter client, and the one that paved the way for many of the conventions we now take for granted in all Twitter clients. Not to mention the way it paved the way for Twitter’s own brand — when The Iconfactory created Ollie the bird to represent the Twitterrific icon and brand, Twitter itself wasn’t using a bird of any shape. It’s remarkable how much of what we now think of as “Twitter” was created by third-party developers.
