Conclusion

First you may want to follow BlackBerry Tune via Twitter.

When it comes to BlackBerry Twitter client, it depends on user’s requirement if you like auto refresh or manual refresh to save on data and allows you to change with option to connect via wi-fi. Picture support or lightweight app integrated with native messages app. I am not sure if RIM is planning to develop Twitter App the way they have for Facebook, Myspace and flickr but let’s wait, it may come in future by looking the impact Twitter has on social networking. If you haven’t tried any twitter app on your BlackBerry so far, then start with ÜberTwitter or TwitterBerry and may want to keep an eye on release of Tweeteev

Currently I am using TweetCaster since last 2 weeks, which Twitter App do you use?
