Looks like RIM has been working on a twitter client for a while but it had been kept shy from the camera until now. Mauricio over at www.Blackberryrocks.com just posted a screenshot of what seems to be the rumored twitter client for the BlackBerry. The application looks a lot like Social scope. According to the rumors it should arrive at a BlackBerry near you in February.
Check out the screenshot and let us know what you think.
Some of the features rumored to have include:
- Notification of number of new tweets on the home screen with icon, like text messages
- Main app opens friends timeline
- Ability to view followers
- Follow/unfollow functions
- Create direct messages, replies and new tweets
- Keyword search and saved results
- Tweet photos directly from camera or memory card
- View photos from other tweets
- View trending topics
- Address book integration
Since this is a native BlackBerry app I would expect it to be a lot easier to use with better menu integrations. I guess we will just have to wait and see when the official word is out from RIM. Thanks to Nelson for the tip.
