There are dozens of Twitter clients that more or less reproduces Twitter official app features, focusing on faster access or better looking. However, there's a lack of originality in most of the Twitter client currently available on Google Play. Tweet Lanes is the exception that proves the rule.
First off, I like the way that Twitter sections are displayed on Tweet Lanes. There are streams for everything: profile, tweets, retweets of me, mentions, timeline, DMs and even lists (which I personally found really useful). Layout is similar to official Twitter app: Holo-style, white and blue background and pull to refresh. Beside streams and "pull to refresh" navigation is way easier since it allows to scroll by using volume up/down hardware keys.
One of its plus points is Context Tweet Box (CTB). It doesn't pop-up a new windows or open a section up for tweeting: as it was a chat, it allows users to write the tweet no matter what stream they're. Likewise, Multiple Selection feature is really useful for cases like two people mentioning you with the same question. To reply both just select that tweets and the CTB will allow you to reply to both with one tweet. Extremely useful.
By applying restrictions on its API, Twitter is blocking third-parties development of great features like the ones that Tweet Lanes provides. Enjoy it while you still can.
