Ever since I signed up for Twitter, I've been using TwitterBerry on my Blackberry 8703e. Twitter has replaced my RSS reader, not that I did much reading via RSS. I think the Blackberry and Twitter were made for each other, and TwitterBerry has made it that much easier to use.
There are not many shortcuts in TwitterBerry v0.8, at least not on my Blackberry 8703e. Some of you know I like shortcuts, see 24 Blackberry Shortcuts, Blackberry Shortcuts - Messages, and Blackberry shortcut keys for Blackberry shortcuts. Using shortcuts can boost productivity and can make a good application great! With that in mind, here are some tips on TwitterBerry.
Shortcuts I've only found two so far on version 0.8
- r - Reply
- d - Direct Message (DM)
- TwitterBerry only holds a certain number of messages, under Friends Timeline, before it cuts off older tweets. If you want to view an old tweet already on your unit, before the list gets refreshed, turn the Blackberry antenna off and peruse in the Friends Timeline. You will end up with a network connection error after a couple of minutes. I have my update interval set to Manual to make this work.
- You cannot cut and paste a url from a tweet (if you know how please let me know!). To get around this, I usually cut and paste the entire tweet and then save the url.
- I gather interesting twitters to read later on by copy pasting into a Blackberry Memopad Note, there are so many interesting tweets ;)
