Twitter for BlackBerry Beta Gets Updated to v1.0.0.40

RIM has updated the official Twitter for BlackBerry Beta app today. The new version is sitting at  1.0.0.40 from the previous build 1.0.0.37. If you haven’t updated or dropped using it from it’s initial version, head over to blackberry.com/twitter to download. After it’s initial release, RIM has been working hard to make this app better in terms of performance and features; and it’s getting better and better with this incrementing updates.

  • Quote Tweets [ability to edit ReTweets]
  • More photo viewing support
  • Personal Info Guard
  • Auto complete for @ usernames [Friend picker]
  • Hotkeys for navigation

RIM has listened to the feedback given by beta users and some of the above features are awesome. I like the auto complete of usernames and Quote Tweets features from this update. Many new hotkeys have been added in this update for speedy navigation. Twitter addicts will like it for sure.
