BlackBerry Rolls Back Twitter App Update As Users Report Issues

If you’ve installed the latest Twitter for Blackberry update in the past few days, you’ll want to read this: BlackBerry has removed the update and is asking all users to revert back to the old version until issues have been resolved.

The beleaguered smartphone maker updated the Twitter for BlackBerry app earlier this month, but the update was short-lived.

Users began noticing issues with the app after updating, including the app simply not opening or crashing upon launch.

This week, BlackBerry wrote a blog post alerting users to the issues and asking that those who have installed the update roll back to the previous version. They have also removed the update from the BlackBerry World app store.

The company provided instructions for users who installed the update and need to roll back to regain access to their Twitter app:

On the home screen, hold the Twitter icon until the X appears. Press the X to delete the application.
Open BlackBerry World.
In BlackBerry World go to Settings by swiping down from the top of the screen.
Select -> General -> Refresh BlackBerry World.
Search for Twitter in BlackBerry World
Install Twitter version 10.2.1

The update itself introduced a host of new features for BlackBerry Twitter users, including improved search, integration with BBM and better reply functionality. There’s no word from BlackBerry about when users can expect to see the fixed update.
