If you haven’t heard yet of Twitter you should check out their site www.twitter.com. Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.
Twitter is an amazing tool to connect with other people and to keep your friends updated about “what you are doing right now”. I personally use Twitter a lot to reach out to other BlackBerry user and share information about my blog.
Twitter has already helped me to meet people I would have never met before in such a short time-frame. Twitter helps you to start conversations and you will meet interesting people you never thought you would meet.
Of course Twitter is not just available online but you can also send updates through your mobile phone. While you can configure Twitter to work with text SMS, I highly recommend to use dedicated software. Here is a list of applications that allow you to use Twitter from your BlackBerry.
The Best-Known App: TwitterBerry
TwitterBerry is one of the most used mobile client for posting updates to Twitter from a BlackBerry smartphone. It works over the data network, so you don’t need to use SMS. TwitterBerry is developed by Orangatame Software and can be downloaded OTA from your BlackBerry from http://orangatame.com/ota/twitterberry/.
The Universal App: TinyTwitter
TinyTwitter is a universal Twitter client and it works on ANY Java enabled device (that’s a bunch & includes the CrackBerry) and ANY Windows Mobile Pocket PC or Smartphone.

The Location Aware App: Twibble
twibble mobile is one of the best twitter clients for Java enabled devices (Nokia, Blackberry, and others). It supports all important twitter functions, uploading of photos via twitpic, GPS, and much more!

The Rising Star: Social Scope
SocialScope is a native Twitter and Facebook status client for your BlackBerry. It aggregates your social networks (Facebook & Twitter for now) and updates your status on both. It also lets you view your twitter timeline!
