On the Twitter app front you've plenty to choose from. Currently I've been using and loving the Twitter.com app itself. Packed full of features. Tweetlist is good but it dosen't offer Push Notifications so you have to opent he app all the time to get mentions/DM's. Unless you use a third party app called boxcar. Which does more thant Twitter but I like the minimalist approach for social media tools.
www.applevis.com really is your friend for app reviews, guides.
There's nifty system apps you can get for remote stuff, and I'm happy to talk to youa bout Jailbreak apps if you ever take that path. I have and would never look back. With allot of my Jailbreak apps I'm able to make my iPhone do much, much more than Apple approve of it doing. For example increasing column/rows, increasing the widgets and info I can put in the notification area. Being able to SSH into my phone for various tasks. Better control over folders, being able to lock them with passwords, lift placement and limits that Apple put on them.
On an entertainment point I was using BBC iPlayer a year before the BBC brought their official app out.
I'm sorry i can't currently be any help ont he keyboard point but will shout on Twitter for you and see what comes back.

I suspect you'll be hard pressed to find such a device. I've done some
extensive searching, but failed. I ended up with a Bluetooth keyboard and
case combination which works extremely well, but I doubt whether your work
situation would allow this.

well this weeks holiday has eventually done in my old nokia e52 so its time
for a new phone.
I was really tempted by android, being a techy type I liked a lot of the
ideas behind it, but in the end techy fun and needing a phone that works out
of the box, every time with a mature level of access were incompatible
requirements as they say.
So I've ordered an IPhone 4. I've played a bit on the wife's ipad and have
the getting started book but had a couple of questions.
I've been looking around and have seen cases for the IPhone that have slide
out Bluetooth keyboards which seems like a grate idea. I'd really like one
that physically connects to the phone and doesn't use a wireless connection.
As I've mentioned in previous posts I work in a secure environment and one
of the limitations is that we have to make sure any wireless tech like
Bluetooth is switched off before I go in to work. So any ideas for a
physical keyboard that plugs in to the phone, preferably one that is built
in to a case and slides out.
Also I'm after recommendations for a good twitter client for IOS, I
currently use tweets60 on my nokia, something like that would be great.
