Want RIM's new BlackBerry Twitter client before anyone else? We've got codes

Early this morning, RIM made a pre-release version of their upcoming Twitter for BlackBerry client available to select members of the media. Our own Leena Rao isn’t too fond of it — but that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be, right?

RIM was nice enough to slip us some extra codes, so a few of our readers are going to get to try it themselves. Want to give the new client a try a full month before anyone else gets it? Read on to find out how to win a code.

We’ve only got five codes to spare, so before you enter, make sure your BlackBerry is up to snuff (any models made in the last 2 years should be.) Here are the requirements, according to RIM:

BlackBerry smartphone with at least 64-MB of built in memory (with at least 750KB available) and BlackBerry® Device Software v4.5 or higher.

All clear? In that case, winning is easy. Just drop a comment below and tell us a humorous, sad, or otherwise interesting tale of your addiction to either BlackBerry or Twitter. Do they have to be true? I’d say yes, but there’s not exactly any way for us to tell – so feel free to stretch the truth. We’ll pick our five favorites tonight at midnight.
