    I just got my bold about two weeks ago and one thing I couldn't stand was that mybattery wouldn't even last a full day. I did everything right like setting my brightness to 10, actually closing apps instead of just the red end call button, etc. And so I came to the conclusion that it had to be an app I installed so I started deleting them to find the problem. Luckily the first app I chose was twitterberry and today I found that my battery eas still around 80 percent when I came back to it.

    A lot of those apps that run in the background will just eat battery life. I seem to recall Twitterberry does drain quite a bit of batt life, but this phenomenon is not limited to just TB. Most of the chat programs (if left running) will drain at a pretty good clip, too. (I believe all of the twitter clients will as well, although I have been able to extend batt life a bit by setting their refresh rate to a larger interval).

    I use UberTwitter on my Storm and I don't see a big drain on the battery throughout the day. Could it be something else? A theme maybe?

    I noticed that after UberTwitter, my Bold's battery drains a bit faster than without it running. I think it also has to do with how frequent you have it update the timeline.

    just dont have the program updating/running in the background. Have it set to close when you exit and not automatically update unless you enter the program

    Yeah this is not exclusive to TB. It could happen with any app that you allow to run in the backround.
    i.e a weather app, Viigo, and any twitter app.

    So the apps are fine, it's the settings that you choose that will drain the battery and memory.
