50 Cent Launches Twitter App ‘Uber50′
50 Cent doesn't leave any stone unturned when it comes to his business ventures. The Queens native, who recently announced that he would be delving into the comedy world with a show and website, has launched his very own Twitter application. Uber50, marks 50's newest business deal, and is a collaboration between the company Uber Media and its Blackberry Twitter application UberSocial.
The rapper-turned-actor's app is available in the basic edition, which is free, as well as the deluxe "G'd up" edition for $1.99. The free version of the app provides users with instant access to a custom logo and icon, while the expanded version, features downloadable wallpapers and special sound effects selected by 50.
"Twitter has become an important way for me to communicate with my fans and for my fans to communicate with each other," he said in a statement. "We're all big users of UberSocial on the BlackBerry and already use many of their current themes to customize the look of the app, so it was a natural for me to work with UberMedia to develop a special theme. I think my fans are going to love sending and reading their tweets with my new theme."
Just one year after joining the social networking site, 50 has amassed over 4 million followers. He uses his page as a platform to promote his projects, take shots at his rivals, and keep in contact with his fans.
The Uber50 app can be downloaded at Uber50.com.
