Is there a way to find and start following someone from my BB? I have the Twitter app on my Pearl, but it doesn't seem to have a menu option for searching. I've tried going to twitter.com on my BB browser, but no luck there either.

Any suggestions?

What Twitter app do you have? They should have a "search" function in the menu. Just search using keywords such as your locale, interests, blackberry! etc...

From your PC you can do the same thing once logged onto Twitter. Just click on "Find people" at the top and enter keywords.

View the timelines of the search results and if the people having interseting and informative posts follow them. Then once you have a few of those - check out who they follow.

You can start by adding me if you want - just click on the Twitter link in my sig

Just give it about a week before you come back and "block" me so you don't hurt my feelings! LOL

Sorry, should have mentioned my BB Twitter app. It's TwitterBerry. I want to search for people to follow from my phone due to Twitter being blocked by work's filters.

I've found people on Twitter from home, but haven't found a way to do it from my phone.

Thanks!

OK - on Twitterberry about all you can do is view the Public Timeline. I would suggest Uber Twitter. Much better program with much better features.

UberTwitter is great but I've been using TwitterBerry a lot more recently (the beta). I like it's minimalist design and it seems to upload photos in better quality than UT.

Either or, I guess. I also have TweetGenius which is by far the best but it doesn't work properly on the Pearl and is a little slow. I'll definitely be using it when I upgrade to a bold/curve whenever that happens.
