very good review. Between then and now, Twitter also put a stopper in a couple of 3rd party apps aimed at bringing tweets to users including UberTwitter and Twidroyd. Between THEN and now, they've both been reinstated, and Twitter's official app has been upgraded to better than ever.

Chad Ochocinco has been given early access to a Motorola XOOM tablet, taking to Twitter to say how pleased he is with the 10-inch slate. "I just received the new Motorola Xoom Tablet and its pretty awesome," Ochocinco told his 1.6m+ followers, going on to warn Motorola that "you won't be getting this back!!!!"
