Twitter for BlackBerry 10 has gotten a nice update this morning giving it some new features iPhone and Android users have come to enjoy for some time now, along with other BlackBerry-specific goodies. Twitter for BlackBerry 10 is finally a BBM-connected app, as you will now be able to post your tweets as status messages on BBM directly from the app. Check out the full change log below.

What’s New:

  • Home Timeline Photo Preview – Tweets with Twitter photos let you be part of the moment. Tap the image to reveal the full screen version.
  • BBM™ Connected – Tweet and update your BBM™ status at the same time.
  • In Line Reply – Join the conversation with an in-line reply when you click on a Tweet.
  • Get to what you love faster with our improved performance and full screen image viewing.
  • Find the accounts you’re looking for with improved search results.
  • Report spam or abuse by clicking on the Tweet details screen.

Although this is a very welcome update, Twitter for BlackBerry 10 is still ridiculously far behind the iPhone and Android version. Unfortunately, if this is how long it has taken for a native social app to get as basic a feature of BBM-connectivity, I’m afraid those using T4BB10 will be waiting a while for more current updates.
