Twitter for Android comes to a tablet

Nathaniel Mott writing for PandoDaily:

So, what’s the catch? Well, the app is only available on Samsung tablets at launch, and isn’t expected to release on other Android tablets for another few months. Furthermore, ughhhhhh.

Ughhhhh is right. Android is befuddled by hundreds of different devices all using various mixes of the same Android OS. I don't see this being a great opportunity for Twitter or Samsung.

Twitter made a smart, rational decision about its latest product launch — it just so happens to be a decision that will rankle the millions of Android users who don’t own Samsung tablets and have been waiting for Twitter to release a proper tablet app

Apple's iOS is a leading mobile OS by extension of it's excellent iOS apps. Android however is a platform full of sloppy seconds for apps. Even for an Android user, it has to be difficult to condone the purchase of a tablet because of a single app.
