    Peep no longer works due to Twitter's new authentication. Just giving a heads up for all you that use the Friendstream widget.
    From Engadget:
    HTC Peep cooked, served a l'orange by Twitter's new authentication scheme -- Engadget

    I use Friendstream and I love it. Guess those days are over.

    If you need a good twitter app in the mean time I suggest "touiteur". Made by the same guys who did Beautiful Widgets.

    I second this. Out of all the twitter apps I tested, Touiteur is by far the best in my opinion and totally worth the premium version.

    This was among the first apps that I deleted after I rooted my phone.

    I got my phone at launch and finally rooted it yesterday. I thought my root was what had killed HTC Peep and Twitter in FriendStream.

    Luckily it was just Twitter redoing their shiz. ^_^

    Never used Peep, but I am waiting on Socialscope for Android.

    Try the Tweetdeck beta if you crave that twitter/facebook integration. Its not pretty, but its functional. If you want a standalone twitter app those, go with Touiter like others have said. it has the best combination of features and it looks good too.

    Good heads up, mines stopped workin yesterday and i was curious of what happened. I use "twitter for android" now...probably not the best app out there but it gets the job done for me
