Today's version 3.1 update to Twitter for BlackBerry focuses on bringing more information and context to individual tweets.

Any single tweets that you expands to see the details will now features full-res images from as well as full RIM maps whenever the tweets is tagged witha location.

The tweet details screen is also going to show more of the conversation, as it now includes previous tweets and replies. They've also also a "retweets" bar under each tweets so users can get a quick look at which users have retweeted their tweets.

Version 3.1 also brings support for right-to-left languages like Arabic and Hebrew. These languages moved out of Twitter Translation Center back in March. Users also finally have the ability to undo a retweet, just in case they get ahead of themselves or want to reverse a mistake.

The last update to Twitter for BlackBerry (version 3.0 back in April) gave users the ability to share their previous tweets as BlackBerry Messenger messages. It also let users pull their BBM contacts' Twitter accounts directly from their BBM profiles.

Last week Twitter announced Twitter for Nokia, which will expand Twitter to series 40 phones giving the service a borader reach across millions more devices.
