If you're not making use of a BlackBerry 10 device right now, there is still plenty of love being handed out to legacy devices, especially if you're a member of the BlackBerry Beta Zone. A new Twitter for BlackBerry update is now available and brings with it some significant changes. Of course, it's still a beta release so some things may be a little bit wonky but if you're open to that, here's what has changed:

  • Extended Profile: Another’s Profile – When viewing another user's profile, two action buttons are available.  The human silhouette button provides actions like Tweeting to the user (i.e., mention).  The Follow / Following button allows the active user to Follow / Unfollow the viewed user.
  • Extended Profile: Screen Photo Thumbnail Picture – Fills the entire square area, has a white border and when focused, the focus ring color has been updated to a different blue.
  • Extended Profile: Screen Swipe Capability and Rendering of Panel Dots – Swipe capability has been added for touch devices and panel dots appear and provide a visual indication of the number of panes and which one is being viewed. 

The update is live now in the BlackBerry Beta Zone and readily available for download. Make sure of you grab it, to offer up plenty of feedback.  That's how apps get better, folks.
