I assume you installed the latest beta 0.8? You can manually try different connection modes by using the "configure" menu option. You can choose "Auto-Detect", BES, BIBS, or TCP.

Tinytwitter has worked for me for months on 4.5 with no problems. For desktop, I use Twitterfox.

I couldn't get TinyTwitter to connect, but TwitterBerry works fine for me. There seems to have been a reply function added since Dietcoke's original post, and there's an option to set how often you receive updates. Thanks to everyone for app suggestions!

Not sure about that, it works for me on both. I have wifi set as preferred and I assume it uses that when I am in the house.

I'm spending more time on Brightkite these days though. Find it more useful with threaded discussion and easy photo posting etc.
Just wish there was a blackberry application for it. Have to use the mobile website at present.

Default GoogleTalk with Twitterspy

I use GoogleTalk with Twitterspy. Twitterspy isn't something you down load. Basically you get and send your IMs to/through Twitterspy. Basically Twitterspy shows up as one of your IM contacts in Google Talk. It isn't like having a full twitter client but you can send your tweets and subscribe to keywords (like the Twitter track that has been broken for ages). So you subscribe to your twitterusername and if people talk to/about you they will show up on your GoogleTalk. I don't mind this because when mobile the whole twitter stream isn't really necessary to me.

I have more details on how to set this up on my blog:

techlifeweb.com/2008/07/07/how-to-set-up-twitterspy-in-google-talk/

And if you are looking for a desktop client, get Tweetdeck.

I use SocialScope, it is amazing, and you can update twitter and facebook at the same time, and you can also reply, and status updates are from the actuall time, not 1min aog or 10 minutes ago

Twitterberry works fine on my 8310 curve and I also get Tunnel timed out error message of TinyTwitter which looks like the better app out of the two - any help would be appreciated

I was getting the tunnel error on my tinytwitter for a little while too. For me it turned out to be my apn settings. I have an unlocked storm on att and the settings were still set to verizon. So it definitely has something to do with you internet connection.

I went back to twitterberry this weekend from SocialScope and noticed a improvement in memory. I'm not leaking memory anymore near as much as I was on .234

Same here (except running .190 on my Bold). SocialScope is great, but it leaks memory like a champ. I'll go back once they iron out a lot of the issues.

If you want to follow Twitter Trends, you'll need to use TinyTweet. It also lets you update your location - doesnt look as nice but much more features.

I downloaded Tiny Twitter, however, I noticed a few things: The BB menu key does not bring up the menu. The space bar does. Sometimes, the app is unresponsive. Is anyone else experiencing these problems? I'm running version 2.1.9

I also have an unlocked 8310. I wanted to try the TinyTwitter and also received the tunnel error. Anyone know how to fix this? I know someone mentioned the internet settings, but nothing specific about what I would need to change.

Any ideas?
