50 Cent Launches Twitter App
Frequent Twitter user 50 Cent, is taking his love for the social media site a bit further. XXLMag.com has learned that Fif has partnered with UberMedia, the largest independent provider of applications for reading and posting to Twitter, to launch a new theme for UberSocial for BlackBerry.
In addition to a free version of the software, that includes special background art, a deluxe version is available for $1.99 including additional, exclusive art as well as sounds that are triggered by actions such as sending a Tweet or direct message, all recorded or selected by 50.
“Twitter has become an important way for me to communicate with my fans and for my fans to communicate with each other,” he said, who himself has more than 4.4 million followers. “We’re all big users of UberSocial on the BlackBerry and already use many of their current themes to customize the look of the app, so it was a natural for me to work with UberMedia to develop a special theme. I think my fans are going to love sending and reading their tweets with my new theme.”
The 50Cent theme will be available for iPhone and Android devices in the near future.
