A friend of mine is a bit of a Twitter addict. He discovered a cool Java Twitter application that works with BlackBerrys and decided to share. The application is nice and small but is not totally customized for the BlackBerry so the menu and navigation are a bit clunky. On the other hand the application has some really cool features. I did not have a chance to see if they all work on my 8310 but Twibble claims they work!

The best part is that Twibble is free. You can read more about the BlackBerry support at this link or you can download it OTA at: http://m.twibble.de/
