This morning RIM sent out word that Twitter for BlackBerry version 1.1 has officially launched. While this version has been available in the Beta Zone since March, its nice to see it now open to all users. Expect to see it in App World over the next 24 hours.

New features include:

  • BlackBerry smartphone users can now add locations to their tweets by enabling the ‘Add location to tweet’ feature in the Options menu.  Once enabled, simply click the new compass icon on the Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones Home screen to add your current location.
  •  The updated release also includes beta user requested features like push @Mentions, #Topic Autocomplete, and ‘Retweeted by you’ indicators, as well as several other enhancements based on feedback received during the beta.

Let us know in the comments if you are able to find it in App World.
