Do you want to interact with your favourite South African celebrities and sportspeople and hear their latest news and views directly from them? Then grab your BlackBerry® smartphone, download or open the Twitter™ for BlackBerry® smartphones app, and join the 1.1 million other South Africans already using the popular microblogging service.

With the Twitter for BlackBerry app, you receive a high quality, feature-rich Twitter experience that allows you to share, send and receive Tweets and relevant information as soon as it happens around the world – anywhere, anytime. Multi-account support is designed to let you use up to five Twitter accounts and even cross-post tweets and re-tweets from one account to another without switching account views.

You’ll be able to keep in touch with friends, read celebrity gossip and keep track of breaking news wherever you are, right from your BlackBerry smartphone. The Twitter for BlackBerry app is one of the top five most downloaded free apps from BlackBerry App World™ in South Africa.

Unlimited access to this social networking service is included in your BlackBerry® Internet Service data plan – just one more reason that a BlackBerry smartphone is the best way to post and read Tweets.

Here is what some famous South African BlackBerry fans have to say about Twitter on their BlackBerry smartphones:

“The BlackBerry smartphone app makes Twitter accessible and quick and easy to use. Great for tweeting on-the-go and uploading pics of events as they happen!” – Koula, presenter on 94.7 Highveld Stereo.

“I love Twitter on my BlackBerry smartphone! I sometimes struggle with techno stuff, but Twitter is user-friendly and really quick with uploads. With my travel schedule being able to add pictures to my tweets has made it possible for me to give my buddies a visual insight into my life.” – Gerrie Elsdon, businesswoman.

“It’s easy to use and it’s “free”! I don’t pay for data – it’s all included in my monthly BlackBerry package! I don’t get charged for Tweeting like you would on other smartphones!” – Vanessa Haywood, actress, television personality and businesswoman.

“Twitter for BlackBerry has been a fantastic way to communicate with my fans and TV viewers around the world, and it also keeps me on the pulse of all the latest breaking news.” – Jennifer Su, TV and radio presenter

“I only use Twitter for BlackBerry. BlackBerry® is best for Twitter because it just works.” – Stevel Marc, Jamaica-born male model.
