I can’t find the original twitter post. I had to tweet someone. Very alien for me as I never really got Twitter

What’s a good client to use. I have an old version of Tweetbot and it says it needs upgrading.

Although I have not been on Twitter for 2000+ days.

I just use the official app. It's not perfect (especially the recent Facebook-like addition of not showing things chronologically until you tap the 'Latest Tweets' thing), but it does the job and supports multiple accounts.

You could also just go to the twitter website and do it from there without installing anything

Didn’t Tweetbot become the official iPhone app? That’s some old version.

No. You're thinking of Tweetie, the creator of which ([email protected]) was hired by Twitter to work on its first official mobile app. That shared some concepts with Tweetie, and possible some code, although it wasn't a straight up re-release or anything.

It has ads as well, there are so many much better 3rd party apps.

It may be great, but it's really hard to find in the rubbish play store. Do you have a link at all?

True, but they haven't been obtrusive enough to drive me to look for an alternative yet. Although I mainly use Twitter on a PC browser so I only really use it once or twice a day on mobile.

Oh, it got pulled from the store because of Twitter's per-app user limit :( Sorry.

Ah that explains it. No worries.

Anyway, I use the official Twitter app and I've found that by 'blocking' every advertiser that runs adverts, you'll see less adverts. It might take a while to block everyone, and new ones do crop up occasionally but at least it helps.
