Which basically means that a time value was assigned to every action (less typing time) and then each app was put through its paces. So for instance how quickly can one reply to a tweet in each app. This is a very neat method and the results are basically a wash.

The *more* interesting conclusion that was drawn is that it would seem Tweetbot is better when used as a Tweet reader, rather than that of a conversation tool. Meaning: you read tweets more frequently then you actually send tweets.
