Don’t Expect Shortage of webOS Twitter Apps for Palm Pre

Many of our readers have been asking if there will be a Twitter client available for the Palm Pre. The answer is a resounding yes, as there appears to be no shortage of developers looking to develop a Twitter app for the Pre. According to Palm’s developer community manager Chuq Von Rospach, there are over 400 applications from developers interested in developing a Twitter client for webOS.

  “I think my last count was about 300 applications writing twitter clients. Good luck standing out in that crowd”

“you can stop submitting applications about building twitter apps. I’m up around 400 now. Good luck standing out in that crowd.”

    “hmm. Overnight, another 10 applications to write twitter apps. Someone’s not listening. And I’m not kidding about that number.”

There are plenty of Twitter clients for the iPhone, but don’t expect those developers to jump to webOS just yet. Atebits, developers of the best selling Tweetie, has no immediate plans to develop for webOS.
