Tweetdeck is my primary interaction with Twitter. Managing twoÂ Twitter accounts would be annoying via the web (two browsers given Prism is dead). At times I do accidentally post under the wrong one. Though I think the solution to that might be not having two blue profile icons. It is not Tweetdeck’s fault I fail to pay attention.
The dot indicating an unread post helps me keep track. I can also clear read posts. These keep me from wasting time re-reading posts. Twitter web presents a count of new unread posts and requires me to click it to present the new one. Maybe if I were more of a dopamine addict, I would prefer it.
I follow the brand names of our clients and the relevant product names in my industry. Tweetdeck’s search columns make this easy.
In an ideal world, I would use the AIR app. However, it is no longer supported for the OS I use at home. Even then, there is a feature both the Chrome and Android apps have it does not.
- AIR app
- PRO: edit the columns in the title bar. (Why I switched back to AIR from Chrome app on one computer.)
- PRO: separate application from the web browser.
- CON: Adobe AIR is no longer available for Linux, which is the OS I use for about 25 hours a week.
CON: If someone I follow mentions another user and I want to look at this other user, then I end up opening a browser to see their profile. Very clunky compared to the Chrome app.There is a setting “Open profiles in web page (saves on API calls)” that was set.
- Chrome app
- PRO:Â If someone I follow mentions another user,Â then I can see it in a client profile.
- CON: In a browser window.
- CON: Cannot edit columns in the title bar. Have to recreate the column with correct values.
- Android app
- PRO:Â If someone I follow mentions another user, then I can see it in a client profile.
- CON: Columns available to use are those from the Twitter web.
Really I am happy enough.
