You Must Use TweetDeck
We see a There have been many changes to Twitter in recent months, including the introduction of a subscription plan with perks, tweaks to the way the response works, and a new font that is not accepted by most. Then there is Fleets, which ended just passing by.
But Twitter is also busy updating and updating other Twitter clients: TweetDeck. Launched in 2008 and acquired by Twitter in 2011, you can think of TweetDeck as a social network window for power users – you get real -time updates, advanced search tools, and more.
If you haven’t tried TweetDeck yet, or if you’ve used it before and have since forgotten about it, here are some of its key features – and it may work best for you than Twitter’s default web client. Like we said Twitter test update on TweetDeck as well, so it looks like more functionality is almost here (and we’re crossing fingers hoping they don’t move anyone there.)
For now, TweetDeck is available in a web browser, but it’s possible that mobile apps are planned on either line as Twitter continues to develop the product.
See All in Real Time
Key to TweetDeck is its spacious layout, separated into customizable columns that you have complete control over. While Twitter is usually just one column — showing the tweets of the people you follow — TweetDeck will provide you with this column and many next to it as well. If you have a widescreen monitor, you can monitor an awful lot of tweets at once.
You can add new columns by clicking on the big blue one + icon on the left side of the TweetDeck interface. As well as your main Twitter timeline (tweets from people you follow), you can set up columns that show your notifications, what you’re talking about, your direct messages, your favorite tweets, comments tweets from a particular user, tweets that match a particular search term, one of your Twitter lists, a trendy topic you like, and more.
So, for example, you might want to set a term for searching for a specific hashtag in a destructive story, and monitoring tweets as they enter. Twitter, and use it instead of your own timeline (especially if you’re just looking for a quick update on what’s happening on the social network).
