I had a bit of a scare this weekend. My preferred Twitter app for my Blackberry – UberTwitter – had been cut off due to policy violations. The only Tweets you could access were from Twitter, giving a link to download an app with functionality.
Being a Twitter addict, I dutifully did download Twitter for Blackberry. And cut down my Tweets most promptly. It was rubbish. Reading the feed, searching. Just a really nasty piece of software.
Now I don’t know what Ubertwitter did – the internet suggests that it was something to do with advertising (which I don’t find particularly invasive) and perhaps using the name ‘Twitter’. Hmm.
Anyway, as of this morning, UberSocial was born, and I am happy to say it is great. Ubergreat.
