Posting to Facebook and Twitter

The following code will help you post to Facebook or Twitter from a BlackBerry Java application. This code requires the use of some API elements that were not introduced until OS 7 so you will want to use a different build in order to continue to support older devices. This code was used in version 3.1 of the game Pixelated.
