TweetDeck is an Adobe Air app that aims to evolve the existing functionality of Twitter by taking an abundance of information i.e twitter feeds, and breaking it down into more manageable bite sized pieces.
How does it do that?
TweetDeck enables users to split their main feed (All Tweets) into topic or group specific columns allowing a broader overview of tweets. To do this All Tweets are saved to a local database. The far left column will always contain All Tweets. The GROUP, SEARCH and REPLIES buttons then allow the user to make up additional columns populated from the database. Once created these additional columns will automatically update allowing the user to keep track of a twitter threads far easier.
Being database driven TweetDeck allows the user to continue twittering even when offline. Tweets and direct messages are queued and then sent automatically when back online. This offline functionality also applies if Twitter is down.
Here are some key features of "TweetDeck":
· Catch up with overnight global twitterings as TweetDeck stores all updates whilst running
· Continual status updates of TweetDeck and Twitter
· Resize TweetDeck as either an unobtrusive column, full screen or anything in between
· Especially useful running full screen on a separate monitor
