UberTwitter Beta 6 released early....kind of
Well most of you saw the mess that happened yesterday with the leaked images of the pre-release of Beta 6 of ÜberTwitter. ÜberTwitter quickly tried to fix the situation but alas, the damage had been done. Beta 6 had been leaked to the masses and was out of control. So instead of fighting it, ÜT decided to make sure everyone had the correct version. Yep, that's right, they have officially released the "unofficial" version. ÜT promises that the official release of B6 with be much more polished than this version. They also say it is just a matter of weeks before we get our hands on the final version. So what's new?
