seesmic-logoPopular social networking dashboard Seesmic has been busy lately. With the recent purchase of Ping.fm extending its updating capabilities, Seesmic today announced several key Twitter upgrades to its Blackberry application.

Recently making upgrades to its mobile Android version, Seesmic is now adding Blackberry features to make Twitter users’ experience easier, according to its blog.  Features include lists, retweets, searches, picture preview, geo-location through Google Maps, a connection with BlackBerry’s BIS-B Internet work, and the ability to delete tweets.

While most of these features can be found across most Twitter applications, several have the potential to make Seesmic on Blackberry a popular app. Aside from the practical retweet function, users will now be able choose a quote feature which includes the quoted user automatically at the end of the tweet. A picture preview feature allows the user to preview any pictures from image services both in the timeline and actual tweets. Leveraging Google Maps and Twitter’s geo-location feature, tweets will have customized maps to reflect the Tweeters location. Lastly, users using any connection, even the BIS-B connection, will be able to use the app.

Seesmic is quickly becoming a go to desktop and mobile all in one social network dashboard. It will be interesting to see what the rest of 2010 holds for the company.
