    The official Twitter app for Android provides a simple, no-frills way to tweet and view your home feed from your phone. To begin, you log in or create an account.

If you want to import your contacts from Gmail, LinkedIn, Yahoo, or Hotmail, you'll have to use the Web browser for that too. After you create your account, reopen the Twitter app and log in. It's an awkward way to start; being able to do everything without leaving the Twitter app would be preferable. However, you need do this only once -- all your subsequent Twitter activities can be performed in-app.
