Embattled tech firm Research In Motion (RIM) has been slammed by users on a Twitter post, which the Canadian company published to get people’s views on BlackBerry phones.

RIM asked people to fill in the blank for how BlackBerry helps them, but not all the responses were positive.

The company tweeted from its @BlackBerry account “Fill in the blank: BlackBerry helps me ________.”

However, many of the people who responded didn''t find BlackBerry too helpful.

“Realize how thankful I am for my #iPhone,” said one user, in one of the tamest yet worst responses RIM could have received.

According to The Los Angeles Times, another user said the same about Android.

Another user said she throws her phone at the wall and, that was in response to another user who was complaining about how BlackBerry phones require you to pull their batteries out when the phone freezes or crashes.

According to the paper, another user pointed out how BlackBerry helps her by keeping her papers from flying off her desk.
