Twitter, LinkedIn apps updated for BlackBerry 10, now function like the real deal

Two new app updates are currently on deck for owners of BlackBerry’s Z10 aimed at enhancing the native Twitter and LinkedIn experience.



And by “enhance,” we mean achieve parity with app iterations on rival mobile OS platforms. With the newly tweaked Twitter for BB10, users will have the option to add or take photos while creating a tweet, delete messages, send direct messages from the ‘Me’ tab, report users as spam and browse conversations in a threaded view. So basically, the new version of Twitter for BB 10 is now fully baked. LinkedIn is also getting a minor overhaul, now letting users view and search for “Recommended” jobs, filter news by industry, message contacts from their profile pages and view images in full-screen. The updates should hit the BlackBerry World store within 24 hours, so practice some patience. Your Z10 just got that much more useful.
