Good news for any Twitters users who have a BlackBerry Beta Zone account. BlackBerry has released Twitter for BlackBerry 10 via Beta Zone in order to get some beta testers up and running to put the app through its paces. It brings about the ability to swipe between timelines. You still have the tabs along the bottom but to make things a bit swift, you can swipe between your feed, Discover and Activity, It is also transitioning into that flatter looking UI that we saw in the leaked OS 10.3.

Twitter for BB10 v10.3.0.219 features

  • Save Tweets as Drafts and send when you are ready
  • Swipable Time to 'Activity' and 'Discover' tabs for quicker access to content
  • Multiple photo enhancements - Photos in Direct Message, toggle pictures on/off in the home timeline, and Retake/Edit options in Tweet composer
  • Age gating - verifying the user's age when following certain brands/products

Those are some nice additions. I would prefer it if I could swipe to my notifications but that can still be accessed using the tab along the bottom. If you'd like to try it out just go ahead and join the program via the Beta Zone app. Go to Programs>Eligible. Once you have joined the program be sure to restart the Beta Zone app to see the available download. Alternatively, if you're not seeing it there, try logging in to the Beta Zone website and join in the program that way. You should then see it available for download soon after. If you haven't got a Beta Zone account yet you can sign up for one for free. Please note that Beta Zone isn't available in all regions.

Please note: This beta version will not work if you are running the leaked 10.3 OS.

Not a twitter fan, but bring on the update.

If, then prosecute perpetrators according to new policy ;-)

Zzzzwiped from a Zedevice....

Naeg1995

again not tweet notifications from the people you follow that make a public tweet …
Even os 7 had it …
And for the record all platforms have it ..
I cant understand why this future doesnt come back :(

I am affraid I would be spammed to death

Swiped via Z10. Powered by 10.3. Spiced with my awesomeness.

Z10NIZED

Absolutely. I don't see how that is a positive feature...
But this is an amazing update! Keep it coming!

Posted via CB10

Z10NIZED

I may be wrong, but if you go to twitter on your browser, you can edit the option there to do this.

Yay! Got it

Just upgraded but it's not much of an update yet.
The swipe feature is cool but limited to your timeline.

They have moved over to a more "flat" design...still no Hub notifications for tweets in your timeline. Ugh.

nerdydaddyo

Nothing showing up. As usual.

I used my Q10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Nothing in Eligible Programs?

Thanks DJ, I couldn't see it either until I looked under eligible programs. Downloading now!

Oops, thought it was downloading but seems to have disappeared???

After you join the program, restart the app to see the available download

Ozfork

Thank you dear, all good now!

nerdydaddyo

Disregard. I did find it under eligible programs, but after I joined it, I tabbed back over to Available and there was nothing. The solution was restart the BlackBerry Beta app and THEN it will appear.

Wow I love it!! It looks like they changed the color a bit..seems to be a more of a brighter blue and the icons have changed. definitely feel alike it's running more smooth as well.

yelmonster

The bird icon isn't properly proportioned though. Other than that, it's a welcomed update :)

shibby080

Agree. Looks strange. The rest of the update is ok. I'd love to be able to set notifications for specific users every time they Tweet.

Why no tweet notifications

bunky1971

I don't remember if previous versions had drafts or not, but it looks like a nice update.

Stomps01

Do you notice that when you install this it says it "securely" uploads your contacts to Twitter so they can suggest twitter contacts? I'm assuming if you hit cancel it doesn't do this but I doubt many people read it before hitting ok....

Lovely update. Just got it. They should change the icon like the FB one soon hopefully.

Thanks, it's a nice update. I've moved Twitter from a folder in place of Blaq for a change. Let's see how long that'll last.

Just got the update and noticed that it quite resembles the look of the web app. One more thing, not 100% sure a new one (or I missed it all the way on old versions) but I like the ability to tap "Home" to return to top of the tweet list.

Get a error when I try to add a banner

They should totally add a Facebook for BlackBerry 10 beta to the Beta Zone too!

Another icon change? 10.3 is coming sooner than we think. They changed the way FB, Twitter. Foursquare and My Verizon to a flatter look just like in the 10.3 leak...

Z10

drfever

What do you mean by icon change. I never paid attention to the old one. You referring to the frame around the twitter launch icon?

Posted from my Z30 on CB10

ARWestenberger

With the twitter one it isn't so obvious, but the Facebook one is smaller with rounder edges and the "shine" is gone. Same thing with Foursquare and My Verizon. They have gone to this flatter look with rounded corners...

The most crucial feature is the ability to clear the cache....WHERE'S IT AT TWITTER????

JohnSebastienTaylor

Was really really hoping I'd be able to make my own lists available by swiping to the left and right.

drfever

Love the new look.

I still can't believe they haven't integrated Emoji support into the keyboard like other operating systems from competitors. I use Twitter a lot so let's give this thing a whirl shall we

Posted from my Z30 on CB10

drfever

I hope this fixes the occasional lock up I get when responding to tweet notifications from my hub where the keyboard doesn't work and I get a big blank page

Posted from my Z30 on CB10

drfever

On first impression it looks good (wish it had Emoji support) and the load time is drastically improved. 'almost' instant

Beta with the swiping action reminds me a tad of Blaq

When do we get tweets from people we are following in the Hub????? I miss this from my old Bold, and will not use Twitter on my 10 until that comes back.

Anyone figure out how to schedule (save) tweet for tweeting it later? It says this is an added feature but I can't seem to find where it is.

You will see an option for drafts and can compose and save

They need to get that dark theme going with this. That should be in one of these beta updates.

I wonder in a future beta update add the feature where you can tag multiple people in a photo and add multiple photos in one tweet. Twitter made an announcement about these features yesterday.
