It’s very difficult to find a good Twitter account in the BlackBerry industry because Twitter is fundamentally a promotional tool. Being a promotional tool, Tweets can be incredibly mundane considering many companies see Twitter as a means of telling their customers “an update is available.”
Personally, I keep my Kyle McInnes Twitter account separate from the BlackBerry Cool Twitter account. The reason being, is that I see BlackBerry Cool as a community and my personal Twitter account is for my personal life.
If you want the latest updates in the BlackBerry industry, follow the BlackBerry Cool Twitter account.
Our Twitter account is not just a link sharing account. We have a whole community of Twitterers who discuss everything surrounding the BlackBerry space.
Here are some of the people I follow in the BlackBerry space. Feel free to comment your own Twitter account and lets get this Twitter party started.
Nan is the man. Not only are his BlackBerry Cool articles top notch, he also works for a great company called SalesBy5 that clearly understand the benefit of social media.
Giancarlo is a Mac-based BlackBerry user and an all around cool guy. I once met him in Montreal and we drank raspberry flavored beer.
Jeff is BlackBerry Cool’s graphic designer as well as he does work for a host of other companies. His tweets remind me of TechCrunch if it were run by hipsters.
Fabian is a BlackBerry developer from Germany whose tweets are great and he’s always on top of the space. Also, he can write some really funny and interesting articles.
I met these guys at WES 2009 and they’re nice guys with a passion for making great themes. We share a common goal to find the perfect theme.
Follow Video4BB if you’re an avid TV watcher and you’re looking to get episodes of your favorite shows ported to your BlackBerry device.
It’s always a pleasure to chat with BBMotion’s BBGeekChic. She’s fun and very engaged in the community. It’s also nice to see more women represented in a field dominated by men.
Kevin runs an awesome BlackBerry blog and although his Twitter account isn’t updated that often, he still offers the highlights.
Doug used to be BBCool’s head honcho and he’s off to greener pastures. He’s staying in the BlackBerry space so get ready for some gold.
Simon used to write for BBCool and now works at IntoMobile. He’s all over the mobile space and can provide some great insight in the space in general. He also loves the Palm Pre.
Kyle works at Vayyoo and does a good job of showing what his company’s product can do to a Twitter account. He’s great at documenting his adventures using photo, video, gps and audio, which all gets sent to a Posterous account and is then forwarded to Twitter.
Remember, feel free to comment your own Twitter account to meet like-minded BlackBerry enthusiasts.
