RIM tonight will roll out an update to its Twitter for BlackBerry smartphones app. Though not a final release version yet, the new beta will add requested features including geo-tagged tweet viewing, improved shortcuts and usability enhancements and old school, editable retweets. The updated app will also include a personal information guard that will warn users against sharing certain personal information, such as their BBM PIN and phone number. Existing users will get an update message, and new users can download the updated beta app from the BlackBerry App World.
