Default Best Twitter For Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

I have been using twitterberry for awhile and wasn't thrilled with it. I didn't like how you couldn't reply to people and the updates are not so frequent.

After looking at berryreview I see there is a new app called tinytwitter

Has a scrolling bar on the bottom with latest twits and is easy to use and works fast...

check it out at berryreview

TinyTwitter - Twitter For Free From Your BlackBerry | BerryReview

I have already removed twitterberry.

The best Twitter client for _any_ platform, BlackBerries included, is your XMPP-based instant messenger program. This is because IM (and SMS, but we'll ignore that since you're on a real phone) is the only way to access the Twitter's 'track' feature. Their web interface, and their API interface, only supports 'follows'.

So fire up JiveTalk or RIM's Google Talk client and have at it.

I'm running the 4.5 beta on my 8310 and although tinytwitter worked fantastic on the 4.2 OS, I have been unable to get it to connect with 4.5.

Too bad IM has been down forever!! I suffer with TinyTwitter, but wish I had an instant notification like IM was. Hmmm, maybe I'll try the SMS hack on AIM.

I use SMS for twitter... but i also have the unlimited text plan. If you have that plan or one with enough text allowance already then it's basically like the IM twitter with all the same features.

At the risk of discussing politics, I'll just say that there are some interesting goings-on in DC today. Twitter has become an important part of that, and I'm interested in learning more. I have JiveTalk, and really like it. Does Twitter work with JiveTalk? How?

Yep, I want to know if Twitter works with JiveTalk also. I have Jivetalk and like it so far.

Go to Twitter's website. You have to configure it with them and then add a user to your GTalk client who you get the messages from (a bot).

Twitter does not currently work with IM, and hasn't for months, so there's no point in going there to set it up.

When I went to the Twitter site to check, I saw that Twitter only works via SMS. It would appear you're correct.

Default twibble for Blackberry

twibble.de is a twitter client which also runs on Blackberrys. You can twitter photos via twitpic and use GPS to update your twitter location.

Yes I can vouch for this. I have been testing twibble for blackberry and it works pretty well as a twitter client. twibble :: a location aware twitter client for Mac OS, Windows, Mobile

I'm running tinytwitter on an 8800 using v4.5 and it is working fine. Sadly I've never managed to get Twitterberry to work - it installed fine but each time you try to tweet it responds with "Network Failure".
