Do you remember your first? First Twitter follower, I mean.

Whether you have tens of thousands of followers now or just a few dozen, you started out with the same number as everyone else: zero. And someone had to be number one; the very first person who thought you were worth paying attention to. The first person in the world to click that “Follow” button on your timeline.

A previously unheard of BlackBerry 10.3 Beta build has just leaked onto the web, giving us a sneak peak at some of the changes that the company formerly known as RIM has in store for us for 2014. While there’s not too terribly much new here – this is still very much the same Blackberry 10 we’ve come to know and, well, tolerate – there do appear to be a few new and interesting changes.
