Hey, ask an unspecific question, get an unspecific answer :)

I mean a live feed that scrolls.

So the display automatically puts newest Tweets at the top and pushes the oldest off the screen?  There are several Twitter readers that function that way but I suspect the true answer will come from your actual use case.  Are you needing a "Twitter Wall" for public display or is this just a way for you to personally consume?  Desktop only or mobile too?

Oh Maybe I'm confused about what Live Feed means? Live Feed, like Facebook uses? I could be mistaken in my terms, but I don't think so...

"pushes the oldest off the screen" with a refresh, or a click for the newest tweets, correct? So that's a bit stagnant.

Let's go for the gold--what if I want to see a "live feed" that puts the newest tweets on top via scroll for:

If you don't know the answer, that's cool too. Perhaps someone else will contribute

You're sort of correct and sort of confused.  The Facebook feed is built from your friends and likes.  The Twitter equivalent is built from who you follow and, increasingly, targeted advertising.  So the effects are analogous, but Twitter doesn't generally use the term "live" internally.  Externally, all sorts of people use it that way.  

Twitter is also different from Facebook in the sense that you can monitor another person's public Tweets, or a search, or a hashtag for new activity without necessarily following them or even having a Twitter account.  So there is an anonymous aspect to Twitter that Facebook doesn't match.

Mobile

A little more problematic because mobile assumes limited data plans so most of the mobile twitter readers won't push the new data in automatically.  Instead, Twitter apps tend to notify you when new tweets for whatever stream (search, hashtag, user, your own feed) you wish. I would look at the official Twitter app for iOS, Tweetbot for iOS, Twitter for Android, and HootSuite for both iOS and Android.

If you don't know the answer, that's cool too

Seriously?  Now it's my turn to SMH.
