Twitter Releases Feature-Rich Update For BlackBerry 10

Twitter has released its Blackberry app version 10.2, and the enhancements are numerous.

A walk through the added functionality, below.

Multiple Twitter accounts: You can now manage up to 5 Twitter accounts. Your main account will be integrated within BlackBerry OS; you can access 4 more of your accounts through the Twitter app:

Activity: The Activity tab lets you view what your followers are doing on Twitter, including who they’re following or what tweets they’re favoriting.

Photos: Twitter for Blackberry 10.2 lets you save photos that are shared on Twitter straight to your BlackBerry. When you long press on a photo in full screen mode, you’ll have the option to save it to your camera roll.

Discover: A new Discover page delivers a stream of tweets, accounts to follow, and more:

Added DM functionality: You can now view, reply, and compose DMs through the BlackBerry Hub (hard to imagine this didn’t already exist).

Search: An enhanced search offers username and hashtag suggestions as you type your queries, plus you’re now able to view your recent and saved searches.

Timelines: Twitter has widened timelines to fill the screen for better browsing. In addition, now when you log into Twitter from your BlackBerry, you’ll automatically be taken to the top of your tweet stream.

The update is available for download from Blackberry World.
