    Is it really that hard? It should be right in front of you. It's the easiest to use Twitter app on BlackBerry.

    It MAY just be me, but has anyone else noticed a slight battery drain/memory drain after downloading the new Twitter app?

    EDIT: I don't mean to hack the thread, just curious.

    Most recent tweets appear at the top, just like at the Twitter website. Also, it tells you in the bottom right how recently each tweet was posted.

    The question is: when a batch of them are downloaded to the phone, where is the first tweet of that batch.

    It's been bothering me too.

    With Uber it would stay on the last read so that when a new group gets pulled in you could scroll through the newest batch and read them in chronological order. Sometimes the BB app will do this, other times it will not. When it doesn't you have to scroll down and try to remember where you left off reading.

    BIG TIME (I mean with battery and memory)

    Uber when opened goes to the last viewed tweet.****
    RIM's client doesn't. It goes to the newest tweet.

    *** I had mine set to check every hr (which I hit update on my own anyhow) so I think this is why I thought that it went to the last viewed.

    I have sinned....

    My only two gripes about the native twitter app are not knowing where the last tweet was after updating several tweets and not being able to add comments to retweets...for that reason I went back to Uber. If those two things change I'll consider going back.

    Steve??? Can you tell where the last tweet is after the newest tweets are on Uber?

    Are you guys closing down Uber after every session? I would only exit so that it's always running in the application switcher. (You have to change that option in the settings I believe so that it doesn't completely close when you exit.) When there was an indication of new tweets I'd open it through the switcher and could scroll up through the new tweets until I reached the top. With the BB app it seems to almost always be at the top.

    I realize that it's still running in the background, but I wished that the BB app would "minimize" to the app switcher like every other app does instead of closing down.

    im also have the same problem of telling which tweet is new and it annoys the **** out of me trying to look for unread tweets....im back to socialscope anyhow which im enjoying

    I think if you give the trackball a quick scroll down after opening the BB Twitter app it'll automatically scroll down to the first unread tweet. Still confirming...

    If you leave the twitter app running and have it put a message in the massages app when a new tweets arrive.

    when you go to read the new tweets, access from the message and it will go to twitter at the point you last where

    Maybe it's just me but...

    If you have the "Navigation Bar" enabled;
    >and leave "Home" highlighted when exiting (with he red 'End' button) when notified of new tweets, open the app and scroll down (as if trying to highlight the top tweet) and it will scroll (by itself) down to the last read tweet. You can then scroll up reading tweets 'til "Home" again highlights...you've reached the end of your new tweets.
    >and leave the last tweet highlighted (scroll down one from "Home") when exiting, it will have that tweet highlighted when re-opened (still the top tweet though). You can then scroll up through the new tweets 'til you get "home" highlighted again. No more new tweets.

    If you have the "Navigation Bar" disabled;
    >you have no choice, the last tweet is highlighted..close the app (with the red "End" button). When re-opened, that same tweet is highlighted...scroll up through your new tweets 'til it won't scroll up any more. No more new tweets.

    Repeat as required.

    As I said at the start, I can't imagine I'm the only one that it works for...

    the Twitter app usually goes the last read message when I scroll into the timeline. There's also a solid line between updates (as opposed to a dashed one) that shows where the latest round of updates starts - I think.
