Seesmic Stops Twitter Client Support for BlackBerry
BlackBerry has gotten a lot of bad press lately. Their stocks are going down, their next batch of smartphone models are late in arriving in the market and their market share is getting smaller. Seesmic just added another thing to worry for the guys at RIM by dropping their Twitter client support for BlackBerry smartphones.
Seesmic has been developing the third party client for BlackBerry smartphones for quite a while now and their departure from BlackBerry is a sign that the company does not think that the BlackBerry platform isn’t popular anymore.
Here’s the official statement that Seesmic made regarding this revelation.
“Effective June 30th, Seesmic will discontinue support for Blackberry in order to focus development efforts on our most popular mobile platforms: Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7.
We encourage those affected by this change to try out Seesmic for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7, as well as Seesmic Desktop and Web.
Those people who own BlackBerry smartphones however will still be able to access their Twitter accounts using the official Twitter app for BlackBerry which is developed by RIM.
Although Seesmic is leaving BlackBerry, most BlackBerry users who use Twitter don’t seem to care much since there are other apps available that they can use.
