    Default Playbook Newbie Question

    Hi all!
    I recently bought the 64gb Playbook and I have to say I am really enjoying it so far! It is my first blackberry device and it has been good fun learning how it works. I haven't run into too many issues yet thankfully.
    I just need help with one thing. I have been manually adding contacts to the playbook as I don't wish to sync it with my email etc. For some of the contacts I have entered their twitter username. However when I click on the little social tab where it should supposedly show you the persons recent status updates it isn't showing anything?
    Anyone know why this is? The playbook is connected to wifi so it's not that.

    Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, I couldn't seem to find anything about it!
    Thanks!

    I'm not sure that will work until the native twitter app is realeased with BB10. Not 100% on that though

    have you added twitter to your accounts tab? under the cog icon at the top of the screen?

    I have added twitter there some time ago and, as with my facebook and email contacts, those you are following are listed along with recent updates.

    the other advantage is that dm's come straight I to the unified inbox.

    have fun!

    Nice, good call. You can message but not tweet, or something like that?

    something like that.

    unified inbox let's you send or receive dms to contacts, etc. but general tweets go via the twitter web page.

    the inbox is reaaly powerful, and will let youbsend and receive messages from multiple email accounts, twitter, facebook and linkedin all from the same app. and you can also have the unified inbox or filer by app.

    have fun abd happy new year to all.
