After launching a test of its new and improved version of Tweetdeck in July, Twitter is now announced a new round of updates for the platform, which is still in call-only mode, but looks set to become more widely available soon.
First, Twitter added again DM column, providing another way to stay on top of your various tweet engagements.
“View, manage, and send instant messages in TweetDeck in one or more columns. Better yet, create a deck to manage all your DMs and group chats. ”
The ability to manage DMs, along with your tweets, has always been a useful element, and the improved display in the new Tweetdeck, along with the updated “Decks,” will further ensure that social media managers can get the most out of options.
Twitter also wants to improve its real-time tracking capacity — now all columns will be automatically refreshed, helping to keep up with the latest news.
Twitter has also recently added capacity add an existing account, and switch from multiple accounts to the TweetDeck Preview panel.
This option provides more capacity to manage updates – if you want to add an existing account:
- Click on your profile icon
- Select “Add Existing Account”
- After adding your accounts, you can switch between them by clicking on the profile icon and then clicking on the profile icon of the added accounts
It also made it easier jump to the top of the column (just look for “Move to the top” and “See new tweets” at the top), while a new undo option has been added when you accidentally delete a column from the screen.
Fin fact, Twitter has added some improvements to the function of the mouse and scroll bar, improving on-screen navigation.
None of these settings are necessarily revolutionary – and as regular TweetDeck users will notice, many of these features have been available in various forms within TweetDeck for some time. But these new and improved variations will help maximize functionality, while Twitter also continues to work on a broader refresh of the entire TweetDeck app.
As noted, a new version of TweetDeck is currently being tested, and Twitter plans to expand access soon.
