BlackBerry has released the latest beta of Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones v1.1, which recently launched through BlackBerry Beta Zone.
Other than the feautres mentioned under, you'll also notice an updated Twitter graphics throughout the app to reflect the new look of the Twitter brand.
- Geotagging Tweets allow you to add your geographical location to Tweets (i.e. the neighborhood and city you are located in at the time of your Tweet). You can enable this feature in the Options menu, as it is turned off by default.
- Push @Mentions lets know who is talking about you or to you, so you can continue the conversation as it happens.
- Chat-Style Messages. Direct Messages renamed to Messages to align with the online Twitter experience and redesigned the interface to follow a chat-style layout. Personally, this is one of my favorite changes!
- #Topic Autocomplete feature will pop up a list of keywords based on previous hashtagged words(e.g. BlackBerry) in Tweets, Retweets, or any hashtagged words you've selected or searched for in Popular Topics, as well as in applications like Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones.
