Tweetdeck Updated With Predictive Typing and Performance Upgrades




Twitter has updated its Tweetdeck client with a number of new features, including the ability to get Tweet embed code straight from the application, a new predictive typing feature, and "performance upgrades for displaying multiple high-velocity columns".

Reports The Next Web:

The update includes changes made to the Chrome version of the app before Christmas, and one of the most visual changes is the addition of 'typeahead' when searching, to offer predictions for what you'll be writing. This also acts as a people search, giving you a list of accounts in your Twitter community that match the text entered.
Twitter says there have been more than 90 fixes and updates from the prior version and Twitter power users may want to give the updated app another look.

Tweetdeck is available free on the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

Who actually still uses Tweetdeck? When they sold it to Twitter it turned into a pile of crap.

I actually felt like checking this out, although it was a while since I used Tweetdeck.

Turns out it wasn't available in my country's Mac App Store. Okay...

(Why isn't a mere Twitter client available worldwide?? A hidden performance as an easter egg in it, and lacking worldwide music rights? )

Edit: Weird. Works now that I didn't use the article link and actually searched in the store here.

Just curious as to what the point of tweetdeck is when I have twitter built into OSX... I can super easily tweet and I'm notified of anyone mentioning me. Is it just to read stuff of those you follow?

I'm sticking to the pre-Twitter owned version unless someone convinces me otherwise.

I think I'll stick to tweetbot. Was expensive but so worth it.

And yet another what looks like a sponsored article from MacRumors.

I think he's referring from the outgoing links. Mac rumours uses viglink which converts all outgoing links to tracking links with affiliate code embedded in them.

It basically means if viglink can pick up an affiliate program for the site macrumors links to, it makes both viglink and macrumors money.

I guess to rephrase my original post. Tweet deck keeps getting updated but where are the updates for the original twitter application for the Mac. It still doesn't have retina support.
