There’s cause for celebration for Twitter power users who keep Tweetbot near and dear to their hearts. Tweetbot 3, the iOS 7 optimized update of arguably the most powerful Twitter client available on iPhone and iPad, has been released. But this is no free update. No, Tweetbot 3 is a new product, and that means buying the app again.
Developer Tapbot is aware this may put off some previous Tweetbot fans, so the app is currently on sale for $2.99. Eventually that price will jump up to $4.99, so act now and look forward to these new features.
