Twitter for BlackBerry has been pre-released in a closed beta.  The beta is by invitation only, however, we’ve heard that there are unofficial download sites  if you look for them…

Infamous BlackBerry tipster, Salomondrin, says that the Official Twitter for BlackBerry Client that we told you RIM was working on the other day will come out on November 16th.  The big to do about RIM’s Twitter client is that it will use BIS Push allowing Tweets to be delivered instantly without having to refresh the interface.
