BlackBerry officially releases Twitter for BlackBerry 1.1

After over a month of testing, R.I.M has officially released Twitter for BlackBerry 1.1. The app has new features such as Geotagging and Push Notifications. It is available on the BlackBerry App World .Here's what they added:

GeoTagging: From your twitter for blackberry, you can now include your location in your tweets via Options in the Menu.

Retweets: When you retweet anything, it will appear in your timeline as 'Retweeted By You' so you can see that your retweet has been sent

AutoComplete of hashtags: When you start typing a hashtag, the app will help you finish it using your previously used hashtags

Chat-like Direct Messages: Direct Messages are now displayed in a chat-like format so you can see all your previous conversations with another tweep under the message tab

New Language Support: For users who tweet in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Polish, Czech and Thai, the app is available in their language. Sorry, No Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa yet[it'll be cool though]
