Beta Twitter App for Blackberry

Twitter App Blackberry

Research In Motion(RIM) announced today that they will finally release the beta Twitter app for BlackBerry to the general public tonight at 9:00 PM Eastern Time — 6:00 PM Pacific Time. The application will be made available to users around the world in the Test Center on the BlackBerry App World.

RIM originally released a preview of the application to a few lucky users back in February 11. Ever since, the company has been tweaking and improving the application based on feedback by those who were invited to try out the application. RIM originally promised to release the application on March 31. The company retracted the announcement a few days later, stating that no launch date had been chosen. However, this public release comes just eight days after the original launch day, which is not bad at all.
