Twitterrific for the iPhone and iPad was updated to version 5.2 today, adding support for native push notifications for mentions, direct messages, favorites, retweets, and new followers.

Previously, Twitterrific did not include native push notifications, instead using third party notification app Boxcar. Not all users will receive immediate access to Twitterrific's push notifications as the service is being rolled out to groups of 1,000 over the next few weeks.

Because you need to be VP at MS, Amazon, Apple...to be able to comment.
No, you just have to engage your brain and consider a small company releasing an update to an app that is already in the hands of 100,000's+ and the amount of work it takes to put together an infrastructure that can handle that kind of load.

This has nothing to do with Apple. I am not familiar with Tweetbot's complete development cycle. I know it was in a testing phase for months and available to limited number of people, but once it hit App Store and started charging wasn't it feature complete?

Don't get me wrong. I could not care less. I use Twitterrific rarely. I am not a Twitter nut so it does not bother me whatever they do with it. If they wanted to properly beta test they could have opt-in/out feature and have bug report feature. This whole first-come first-serve is utter nonsense, especially on a product released to public. I agree with you that the larger user base tests it the better. It will be in the end. I just dislike the way it is done. In the end, it doesn't matter what I think as it does not make any difference.
It has nothing to do with beta testing and feedback! It's about pure and simple server load. Trying to optimise SQL queries, tweak config settings and generally add capacity is very very difficult when you're being flooded with traffic.

And you're wrong about Tweetbot:
