A blackberry phone

A stream of jokes and sarcasm has taken over social media ever since BlackBerry Messenger was made available for download for Android and iOS users recently, and there’s no stopping the battles over the new ‘open policy’.

“The most annoying part of BBM for Android is the overshare of BB pins . It seems like we are back in 2010,” says Aakriti Mehta, 24, who works for a production company. Vivani Khurana, 26, a fashion writer refutes: “What’s with the sour grapes over the pin shares? Almost all of us have graduated from Blackberry to Androids. The app is finally out, so I think it’s cool to flaunt a pin if you have one.” Meanwhile, here are some tweets that made us laugh.

WhatsApp, WeChat, LINE hike and now BBM for Android to talk to the same people, It’s like buying five remotes for the same TV, @SufiKhan.

If people were as enthusiastic for #VoterRegistration as they are for BBM Pin, it will help strengthen our democracy!

BB Users: “BBM is such an outdated app for us”, iPhone & Android users: “BBM rocks”,

Nokia smartphone users: “Angry Birds khela hai kya?”

@prtxt BBM for Android looks so dated that using it would make you feel 10 years younger.
