    The desktop Twitter website works great on my Playbook. Is there a feature the app would have that the desktop website doesn't have? I'm curious now.

    Do you guys think it will say "via Twitter For BlackBerry PlayBook" under the tweets we send, like it says "via Twitter For BlackBerry"??

    Have you tried Blaq? Maybe you want to wait and see what RIM's Twitter client looks like before buying another Twitter app, but I bought Blaq as soon as it came out. It's only $1.99. It is really well done and has a real cool looking dark gray/ dark blue and green color scheme, sort of like Ubersocial's Midnight theme. It has notifications, and you can set it so whenever someone mentions or retweets you, or even just tweets, a notification pops up in the left upper corner, just like a Bridge or new app update notification, where it glows red and you click on it. It also says "via Blaq for PlayBook"... so it gets an A+

    No it doesn't work like the Bridge App, because there notifications work whether the app is open or not.

    On the other hand, apps like Blaq requires the app to be open for you to even get any notifications which defeats to purpose of notifications in the first place.

    Notification system is still way behind BlackBerry phones, and even Android and iOS.

    Good point. Blaq does have to be open to get notifications. But the PlayBook is great at multitasking, so I usually leave Blaq open and swipe over to it if I want to see what my "mention" was.

    Bluebox IS for DropBox.. I use it and so far so good, it even lets you upload files directly from the playbook..

    On another note, I do hope there will be an app for twitter.. I can't wait for the OS 2.0

    Here's the question if an official Twitter app is released: will it feature geolocation? None of the third-party apps I've looked at in App World feature it.

    Are you sure it wasn't just the Twitter icon that comes with 1.08 that just takes you to the website?
