TweetDeck to get its first major update in 10 years
TweetDeck, Twitter’s alternative client for advanced users, is about to get a big redesign. In an interview for The Verge, Twitter’s chief product officer Kayvon Beykpour stated:


TweetDeck was one of the biggest third-party alternative Twitter clients in 2008 before Twitter acquired it in 2011. It has not seen any major updates in the last 10 years.

The biggest advantage of TweetDeck over the standard Twitter client is the layout: it gives you an overview of your feed, notifications, messages and trends all on a single page, and many aspects of the layout are customizable. Moreover, you can easily manage multiple Twitter accounts. Another key feature of TweetDeck is the option to schedule tweets.

A recent Bloomberg report suggested TweetDeck might adopt a subscription plan in the future.
For now, Twitter’s alternative client is free and available on the web and as a macOS app.

Twitter has been working on a lot of changes recently. We previously reported that the social network is working on adding new features like an Undo button and a Shop button. Reportedly, the Undo button appears after sending a tweet and gives the user the opportunity not to send it and edit. The Shop button will make shopping on the site easier, as it will appear on every tweet containing an offer, reportedly. We won’t be surprised to see Twitter bring even more new features to its network in the near future.
