Official Twitter for BlackBerry App gets quick video demo


February 11, 2010 10:24am

There are many Twitter apps that BlackBerry users can tweet with… RIM didn’t want to miss the boat and have released a beta version of the Official Twitter for BlackBerry Smartphones App. You can check out the video that Adam over at CrackBerry put together, it’s a good first look and acts similar to Twitter does on your computer. Some of the features are the ability to View friends timeline, mentions and direct messages, Message list integration, Ability to use BlackBerry Shortcuts, Ribbon notifications, Search Twitter. Compose Tweets from menu
and Post links from Browser.

You’ll see in the video that the app doesn’t load very fast and lags at times. Hopefully RIM takes all the feedback in the beta test and makes it more powerful

    This is great! I’ve been waiting for an official twitter client from RIM for a while now. The only thing that worries me, and also with the rest of RIMs official blackberry apps, is lightness. They need to keep these Apps simple and light, combined with tight integration. I can’t have my other apps lagging like hell or battery life going down the drain because I want to tweet/see what’s going on.
