    "Switch to something new"

    May 29, 2013  |   By BodoKachari

    Version: TweetDeck 2.7.1

    Pros

    It's a reminder of what TweetDeck once was

    Cons

    It's a bad reminder of what TweetDeck once was

    Summary

    TweetDeck was a rock-star, but now its desktop version is dying. I personally switched to BuzzBundle a couple of months ago and it's a perfect alternative to TweetDeeck.

    "New Tweetdeck"

    May 5, 2013  |   By marabelleblue

    Version: TweetDeck 2.7.1

    Pros

    Not one pro I can find for the new tweetdeck.

    Cons

    The worst. Where is the simplicity? Everything was one stop update, now everyone wants to separate. No good.

    Summary

    If it wasn't broken why fix it? People are so over the top and forget the simplicity of why something was working in the first place.

    "Twitter has successfully destroyed this client."

    April 12, 2013  |   By firerunner99

    Version: TweetDeck 2.7.1

    Pros

    It is now apparent to everyone that Twitter hates its users.

    Cons

    This version of Tweetdeck is an abomination. Please just kill the program and put it out of its misery. Inferior to the previous version in every way.

    "Program does not deserve the name of "TweetDeck""

    April 8, 2013  |   By Green_Star1

    Version: TweetDeck 2.7.1

    Pros

    Well it is free

    Cons

    Very few user options
    you cannot paste text into tweets you have to type each one

    Summary

    If Twitter hated TweetDeck so much why did they just quit putting it out instead of degrading it more with each version upgrade ?
    There is less user options with each upgrade and the bells and whistles of the original TweetDeck are long gone.

    "Only 1 star until retweet bug is fixed"

    November 23, 2012  |   By dalejava

    Version: TweetDeck 2.1

    Pros

    Clean interface, multi-column list view keeps tweets organized

    Cons

    Before Twitter bought this, it was great. After, Twitter "enhanced" it and broke the block retweet function. Still broken for many, many months with no fix.

    Summary

    Track down the old version and stick with it. Some mildly useful updates don't make up for breaking a product, then not fixing it

    "What, if anything, were they thinking?"

    July 25, 2012  |   By SW_A

    Version: TweetDeck 1.5.2

    Pros

    It didn't crash or lock my PC.

    Cons

    I was hoping to find something for my PC as convenient and useful as Tweetcaster is on my Kindle Fire. So, I downloaded and tried Tweetdeck. One thing after another seemed to not work. Things that would logically be included weren't. The screen display is oversized and unmanageable.

    The best software is logical and intuitive because the programmer(s) anticipated what capabilities you would want and when, and how you would use them. Tweetdeck, unfortunately, took me back to the bad old days of clunky, illogical software that doesn't justify the space it takes up or the time it takes to install and cope with its quirks and inadequacies.

    After installing Tweetdeck, it was such a disappointment I thought maybe there had been a hiccup during installation. I uninstalled it, rebooted and reinstalled. I then gave the program another try. After thinking about it overnight, I uninstalled it.

    Summary

    If Tweetdeck's programmers happen by and read this, I challenge them to try Tweetcaster on a Kindle Fire or other Android tablet. Then, scrap what you've done and start over.

    "Created an account here just to give it 1 star"

    July 12, 2012  |   By zlc3

    Version: TweetDeck 1.4

    Pros

    None. Not one. Twitter took the best twitter client & turned it into the worst.
    Ability to see your followers tweets to other twitter members you don't follow? Gone!
    Spellchecker? Gone!
    Deck.ly? Gone!
    Post update on enter? Gone!

    Cons

    Everything! I can't even get it to snap to half screen in windows 7. or even manually adjust it to fit half screen. No matter what you do it'll take up over half the screen. You can't right click. Yup. Try it! *Right click* nothing happens!

    Summary

    Every client that comes out that is better than the official twitter POS, twitter either gets it shut down, or buys it. & in the case of Tweetdeck they bought it & ruined it. You suck Twitter! Screw you!

    "Not as good as the original TweetDeck BUT"

    May 31, 2012  |   By Green_Star1

    Version: TweetDeck 1.4

    Pros

    does a fantastic job on monitoring multiple list
    marks tweets that you retweet so that you don't waste time trying to retweet.
    It is the easiest on system resources that I have found 5 stars on this.
    It does not appear to be limited on API calls like other programs

    Cons

    You have to type in each tweet you can NOT copy and past.
    It will not accept Facebook settings just gives you a blank screen.
    has a dismal color scheme

    Summary

    Twitters TweetDeck does not yet have the cool of the original TweetDeck. But it does have more features that any of the other programs that I checked And the fact that it uses less system resource that any of the other big name programs that I checked is a biggie. In these days when the it takes all you have to run the anti virus programs

    "Don't download"

    May 25, 2012  |   By Jenpsi

    Version: TweetDeck 1.4

    Pros

    Everything good about Tweetdeck has been stripped away.

    Cons

    Everything. No spellcheck, wasted screen space, two clicks to see someones tweets. Everything.

    "My favorite Twitter client... ruined"

    February 13, 2012  |   By GalaxyFox

    Version: TweetDeck 1.2

    Pros

    -No longer uses Adobe AIR so it uses less system resources.
    -Doesn't replace the old version so I can still use it.

    Cons

    -Huge waste of screen space. Why can't there be a scrollbar like there used to be? Why are we forced to 3 columns with a giant blank space on the side?
    -Most social network integrations removed.
    -Forced to use Twitter's new retweets.
    -Simply an HTML5 app wrapped in a window (including the notifications). Developers were ridiculously lazy here.
    -Managing multiple accounts is a mess.
    -Nearly no settings to customize.
    -No auto completion of usernames.

    Summary

    TweetDeck 0.38.2 and earlier was my favorite Twitter client. With this new release, Twitter has destroyed it. Fortunately, it installs independently from the old AIR version, so I can still run the old version (which I currently still do).

    The Cons list goes on and on. Twitter clearly doesn't want people to use other apps besides their website.

    If you want to use TweetDeck, find the old AIR version somewhere. Many non-official sources are still offering it. It currently still works until Twitter does something to their API to break it (and I wouldn't be surprised if they do something to break the old TweetDeck).

    So thank you Twitter, for ruining one of the best Twitter apps ever created.
