- Twitter® for BlackBerry® smartphones
If following a protected Twitter® account, there will be no option to 'retweet' based on the protected account settings. Protected Twitter account settings only permit tweets to be visible to approved followers. This is by design within Twitter and is not specific to Twitter® for BlackBerry® smartphones.
A protected Twitter account will show a small lock icon next to the tweet in the timeline.
For more information on protected Twitter accounts please see the following Twitter support article: http://support.twitter.com/entries/14016-about-public-and-protected-accounts
