Twitter For BlackBerry Upgrade Integrates BBM, Makes Sharing Links EasierBy: Josh Wolford - April 2, 2012
Today, the Twitter for BlackBerry app gets an upgrade. Version 3.0 is now available to download at the BlackBerry app world for device software 5.0 and above.
Probably the biggest thing to come with this update is the new connection with BlackBerry Messenger. Now, BBM users can easily share their last tweet as their personal BBM message. Additionally, users can now pull up their BBM contacts’ Twitter accounts from their BBM profiles.
The new version also does some cool stuff with link and photos:
Twitter for BlackBerry makes it easier to share links to web pages directly from the browser. When you tweet a link it will automatically be shortened so it takes up fewer characters. And, you can upload photos to Twitter (pic.twitter.com) right from your device’s camera or when writing your Tweets.
Back in December 2011, the last major update to the Twitter for BlackBerry app brought multi-account support. The app also allowed users to combine timelines from five different accounts and gave them the ability to post to those multiple accounts with one single action.
