Twitter® for BlackBerry®

I received this press release today and felt I should share immediately. I’m curious to see how Twitter® for BlackBerry® is going to do against Ubertwitter which has become the application of choice for any Blackberry user around the world. With the Twitter mobile and web site both lacking in the convenience of functionality that other applications have, Twitter® for BlackBerry® is long overdue. Try it and let me know what you think. 480x360_Twitter_ENG_03 The new Twitter® for BlackBerry® smartphones application launches in BlackBerry App World™ today, allowing BlackBerry users to engage with the popular social media platform. The application allows users to:

  • Get direct messages as soon as they arrive (making use of BlackBerry® push)
  • Reply to tweets, re-tweet and send direct messages
  • Post a link from their BlackBerry® browser
  • Take pictures and upload them direct from the camera application
  • Share thoughts and join conversations
  • Find and follow friends or search for popular topics
