Official Twitter app from BlackBerry

Hi,

I added a Twitter account through the Accounts page in the Settings. That way, Im shown only the Direct Messages. Unable to find my twitter timeline. 

Is there an official Twitter app from BlackBerry for the PlayBooks on the AppWorld. I find that coming preloaded on Z10 smartphones but not on PlayBooks. I am not preferring to download other 3rd party apps. What are the possible risks of sideloading an app? I prefer to download the official app for Playbook from the online store.

Most western countries have local bundles added on setup which includes a Twitter app. (it's the first one I delete after a wipe and setup). So unless you live in oppressive regimes you should have got the nasty little blue birdy on home page.

 

Friends who tweet recommend Blaq ( £1.50 in UK)

Re: Official Twitter app from BlackBerry

There is (on mine) a Twitter Short Cut pre installed on the home screen of the PlayBook.  This however will only allow you to view mobile Twitter. There was a url trick that could change this to full Twitter but Twitter put a stop to this across several platforms apparently for security reasons.  I recommend you download the Origami Browser from BlackBerry World. This will allow you to view the full version of Twitter as though on a pc. Works well for me.

I use BLAQ for both the PlayBook and the Z10, and it is very good and easy to use on both platform

Blaq is the definitive best Twitter client on PlayBook and BB10
