Twitter has updated TweetDeck for Chrome and the web with a completely new interface. The UI has been reworked to make it easy to access all of your columns without constantly scrolling. Previous versions of TweetDeck only showed your columns, requiring you to scroll horizontally to see the columns that were off-screen. With a new sidebar to the left, users can simply click on an icon to be brought to that column. The sidebar also provides links to your settings, lists, and a compose button. Each column still retains the ability to filter tweets by content, users, and the ability to control alerts.
The redesigned TweetDeck matches the interface of Twitter for Mac, creating a unified Twitter experience across different platforms. While TweetDeck for Android, iPhone, and Adobe AIR was discontinued in May of this year, it’s nice to see that Twitter hasn’t completely abandoned its development. Android and iOS users will have to use the official Twitter application or one of many third-party alternatives out there.
