This Twitter client had been announced a couple of months ago, in August. Shortly after that, Twittly went into beta zone for people to try out. Today, we see it arrive in BlackBerry World, available for all. For most, Blaq has been the Twitter client a lot of people have been using for features not found within the native Twitter app. Twittly wants to join in on all the fun and I must say it's a very feature rich app. I've been testing it out and I do like it a lot. Especially the fact that I can change the color theme.

Twittly has a very long feature list but let me pick out some of my favorites. Quick show icons so you can reply or retweet and Tweet faster, color theme, set a wallpaper, Action Drawer which lets you update your status, send an email/SMS without leaving the app.

If you have a BlackBerry Passport, Twittly has full support for the device too, like being able to use the touch sensitive keyboard to scroll.
