Twitter has given its BlackBerry 10 app a bit of a spit-shine this week, as the company rolls out a slew of new features that should please BlackBerry fans.

In addition to a handful of performance tweaks, with version 10.2.2.1 of the app you can now tweet and update your BBM status simultaneously. Furthermore, tweets with Twitter photos (e.g. pic.twitter.com) linked now display thumbnails of the snaps on your Home timeline. You can also now report spam or abuse by clicking on the tweet details screen.

Finally, this update now enables you to reply within tweets, with a baked-in message composer appearing whenever you tap to see more details of a tweet. And you’ll also now see relevant accounts in Search whenever you enter a query.
