This is how I feel about TweetDeck:
TweetDeck is a social media application developed on Adobe AIR with the sole purpose of managing multiple social media accounts and status updates.
- You can translate your tweets and updates to about 50 different languages
- It stores your recent hashtags
- It displays the popular tags
- It auto shortens URLs
- It uploads your images
- You can tweet in “real time”
It’s that cool.
Another useful feature about TweetDeck is its excellent reply capability.
Each group (see above picture) that you create is a vertical column of tweets, with the newest at the top of each column. Each message, or status update, provides you with a set of tools that will allow you to reply.
Side note: I have a group created for my timeline (everyone), mentions, direct messages, and #fitblog.
For each tweet, you will be provided with a few basic functions:
- Direct message
- Retweet (love that one)
- Other Actions (favorite, block, ect…)
When you click the reply button, @user will automatically be displayed in your message box.
The same thing will happen for the direct message button, but D User will be displayed.
My favorite feature is the retweet button. When you click this button, the previous tweet will automatically be displayed and will be available for edit.
If you click on the name of the sender of the message or any @user, TweetDeck will open the Profile of that user in a column on the right.
You ain’t no holla back girl!?
Katie is awesome by the way. Follow her!
Here, you can…
- Read their bio and click on any URL they have provided
- Read previous tweets
At the bottom of the column, you can click a button to follow them. If you’re already a follower, you can add or remove them from a group.
Ok, I just have one more little tidbit…
Next to the sender’s name is a plus sign (+).
By clicking that plus sign, you can quickly add someone to a group.
Ok, just one more!
TweetDeck also shows you the application used to send the message, and links to that application. This is useful for finding new ways to tweet.
See Katie, is already using TweetDeck!
Tisk tisk Holly…
