    Twitter today updated its TweetDeck for Mac app to introduce a new compose window with a refreshed look and new capabilities.

    The updated window features a cleaner design with either a dark theme or a light theme based on your preferences. In the screenshot below, the darker theme is depicted, with the original window on the left and the new window on the right.

    The compose window now includes support for adding GIFs to a tweet, a new addition to TweetDeck, and there's also an option for creating a poll. A new emoji picker has been added, and support for image descriptions and tags is new.

    TweetDeck is providing an option to swap between the new compose window and the old, so those who prefer the original interface can stick with it for the time being.


    The new features are part of a server side update, so you don't need to download a new version of the app to get the updated compose window.

    TweetDeck for Mac can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    So I guess Tweetdeck is owned by Twitter, otherwise Tweetbot would be able to add polls too.

    Exactly. Why is this on the front page? What percentage of MacRumours readers actually use TweetMyDeck? I have better things to do than tweeting about my deck.

    Ah, the obligatory Debbie Downers flock to the news thread like moths to the flame

    Twitter has really kneecapped all third party Twitter clients.

    White knight wannabe—I like macrumors but paid blog posts should be labeled as such.

    Who cares? Why does irrelevant cr** like this get their own articles? What's your reasoning for choosing this piece of software over another to waste an entire article on?

    Because it's not irrelevant to everyone, nor is it your website to make decisions about?

    Yes. Literally anything is worth a front pages post if it matters to one person. Also, no critiquing content choices unless you own this website.

    Out if interest I seem t be stuck on the old version, with no option to add polls etc.

    Is anyone else stuck on the old version?

    How do I access the newer version?

    A lot of App Store apps have not been updating properly in the past week or two. If you got your app from the App Store, just delete your existing copy and download a new one.

    My understanding of using the web version is that the changes were on the server side so no update necessary. Out of interest even with downloading from app store for desktop version, I have the same issue
