Right about now I can honestly say it would be nice to be Loren Brichter. Why? Loren is the person behind Tweetie, a widly popular (and downright sexy) Twitter app for both OS X and iPhone. After countless favorable reviews and rewards, all that hard work is paying off. Earlier this evening, Twitter announced that they bought Tweetie, are going to rename it “Twitter for iPhone” — the official Twitter app — and knock the price down from $2.99, to free. That’s quite a bit to take in, and believe me, I was pretty shocked when I read it.

It shouldn’t be too surprising though. Twitter has made it’s case well know that it seeks to “fill the holes” 3rd party apps have been filling so far. Purchasing Tweetie and re-branding it as their own is just the start. Any excited for a now “official” Twitter iPhone app, one that is free to boot?
