Third party developers may suffer as a result

Those who love to use social networking websites might want to consider trading in their old phone for cash to buy a Blackberry or iPhone. The micro-blogging site Twitter has announced that they are to release official apps on the two popular smartphones.

The popularity of Twitter has led to a number of developers creating apps that allow users to easily update their status by tweeting their thoughts in the limited space of 140 characters.

Although now that Twitter have acquired popular paid app Tweetie which they will re-brand as Twitter for iPhone, some fear that other it might lead to the demise of other Twitter tools such as Twitterific who were in part responsible for building the Twitter name.

The app for the Blackberry which was released last Friday includes camera and photo gallery integration, lists, search for users, content and trending topics, and interface fonts and tool bars that can be customized to give a more personalised touch.

It is unsure whether Twitter will soon be announcing official apps for Android and Windows Mobile, but blogs are speculating that the social networking site will try to monopolise the market.

Sell your old mobile for a smartphone so you can tweet on the go with the official apps, or keep it real by downloading one from a third-party developer.
