Woo hoo! For all you Twitter lovers out there, consider this an early holiday present — a Twitter update has arrived for BlackBerry smartphones.
Who better to walk us around a few of the changes than someone from Twitter themselves? Today we’re going to republish a post from the official Twitter blog that explains what new features will be available to you in the app update. NOTE: Please be aware that it may take up to 24 hours for the app to be available in the BlackBerry App World storefront.
Now BlackBerry will have Connect capabilities on Twitter. New tabs, streamlined design, and simplified navigation makes this the most enjoyable Twitter for BlackBerry app yet.
Connect shows you who retweeted, favorited and followed you, and gathers all your mentions in one place. And now it’s simple to filter mentions and replies to see only certain interactions.
We’ve improved access to existing and new functionality. For example, the new Discover tab encompasses Trends, “Who to follow” suggestions, and an easier way to browse categories. You will now find messages, lists, and your favorited Tweets in the Me tab.
Download the update and enjoy.
There you have it, straight from the source. Be sure to download the update (please note that the app may take up to 24 hours to appear) and let us know what you think in the comments below!
