Twitter freezes as soon as I open it

Hi

I had an update to Twitter this week, followed by an update to App World.  I havent used Twitter for a couple of days so I cant be sure but I think that its since then it has stopped working. If I click on the icon, I get my home page but then it hangs & wont do another thing. I have to turn the phone off to get it to go - then I get a message about RIM -BB- 221 - not responding - aborting etc etc.

I have deleted Twitter and reinstalled to no avail.

any suggestion would be very welcome

thanks

No, don't turn the phone off!  Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescribed for most glitches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.
