Official Launch of Twitter for Blackberry

Posted on 07. Jul, 2010 by in BlackBerry, Tech News

A couple of months ago Twitter for Blackberry was released in beta invite and then beta for everyone. Tonight Research In Motion rolls out the “Official” Twitter for Blackberry bringing some changes to the previous version we’ve tried. I like the fact that RIM decided to get feedback from users before launching the official app.
