Twitter has bought the Twitter iPhone app Tweetie and is now planning to use that to launch their own official App for Android users as well. The company used the Chirp conference for Twitter developers to push this notice out and you can see at https://app-reviews.org/android-app-reviews/. As always, there is a lot of confusion and hatered against twitter for doing this to their developers but Twitter never said that it will not make its own official App. The company will of course not block the third party apps that are already there but it does threaten to take their business away.
The main problem that developers are facing right now is the fact that Twitter might implement API calls that only they can and hence make their official app the only app with those features. However, Twitter has always maintained that any new feature that they add will be send down the public stream even before it goes live on the website.
