Twitter users on BlackBerry 10 devices have received a significant update. BlackBerry says the new Twitter version is “designed to heighten your Twitter experience.”

Here’s what’s new in Twitter 10.2.1 for BlackBerry 10:

  • Lists: You can now view, create, subscribe, and edit Twitter lists from your BlackBerry 10 smartphone.
  • Enhanced personalization and recommendations: You can now see trends based on personal interests and location. When you search for a topic in the trends section, the app shows you people to follow based on the topic and conversations around the topic. You can also see trends for a particular location (eg. Canada, US, Cape Town, and so on).
  • See more photos – Scroll through tweeted images in the photo image gallery.
  • Learn about even more fascinating people when you visit profiles. The app now showcases other cool accounts to follow based on the person’s profile you’re viewing.
  • New icon indicates tweets with video.
  • DM message status in the app now syncs across all your devices and Twitter accounts.
  • View recent Tweets in an Active Frame (while the Twitter app is minimized on the Home screen).

It’s nice to see the new features added, but sad to know the Twitter app will always be one step behind. BlackBerry develops the Twitter app themselves since Twitter only has time for iOS and Android. This means we’ve got to wait for BlackBerry to react once Twitter pushes out new features to the other platforms.
