How could I block "Twitter’s Promoted Tweets"? I use the official iOS client. I also use the official OS X client, but so far didn't notice on OS X "Promoted Tweets".
Is the solution to switch to other iOS client? Which one without ads?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
Twitter is injecting the promoted tweets into the stream. It's only a matter of time until they lean on every third-party app provider to stop filtering out the promoted tweets as this is how they're going to pay for the service.
In the short-term you can use a different client but in the long term all signs point to you being forced to see promoted tweets promoted tweets or leave Twitter.
Even in fall of 2013, most major third party twitter apps aren't showing promoted tweets. I use twitterrific and don't see promoted content in my streams.
