Everything that I wanted & didn't know it til I had it
This app is fantastic. I have two twitters, one is a business and one is personal. Now I have have all but stopped going on my personal as I am so focused on growing my buisness account, and as some of you might know.. this takes some work. As time went on, I defintely was not satisfied with my experience on twitter and felt like it was just incredibly difficult & time consuming to properly utilize twitter for my needs.
Then I found this app.
No joke, changed my entire EVERYTHING with my business acount. I love the feature where you can "follow" hash tags and have different feeds going all in one window. This allows me to be able to reach out and increase my exposure to the right audience and find new ways to engage with people and really make great strides in creating the brand I want. I am able to stay up to date in the community I am involved in and see tweets as they come in. At the time, side by side I can see recent tweets on a certain hastag, or follow specific accounts. All in all, I am so happy to have found this app and I would highly recommend it to even the average user.
This app is actually pretty decent!
I gave it a test-drive for like 45 minutes, and I was actually really impressed by this app. One thing I really find great about this app, is that it can play videos perfectly fine, whereas when I go to Twitter on Safari, it won't play crap. So this app is great for watching videos and viewing photos. It's also likeing when it doesn't open the same page twice in a row, like the Twitter website on Safari did. I also like the custom trends based on my activity and followers, whereas on the website, you only get trends for you localized area. I think a lot people just don't like this app, because they're still upset that Twitter removed the app from the "mac app store" and not the "ios app store". And because it's devloped by Twitter itself, it's not a 3rd party app that always tries to ask for your money. If an update breaks this app, or any of it's features, I'll more than likely update this review, but after using today, I really enjoyed using it.
Thanks for disabling Twitter app
By open ambush
Sarcasm, but at first this seemed like a nice replacement due to the fact Twitter not only removed the Twitter app from the App store, but also disabled using its service completely, which is quite stupid in my opinion. I like the fact this app allows the 280 character limit which the Twitter app lacked. Less bugs and it almost never quits unexpectedly, another bug the Twitter app had.
What I don’t like about this app is how its functionality just depeletes over time. Lately this app has a bug which doesn’t load images or videos for some unknown reason. Used to work earlier. This app needs to update gif capablities, because how can you go on without that feature? C’mon! You should offer the ability to hide images through settings, which I no longer see the option for or the setting is elsewhere. Would give this a five star, but it’s quite lacky on what Twitter should be like as it is by the mobile app.
Why is it such a POS?
This is my favorite Twitter app by far, but over the last few months, its quality has degraded to the point that I’ve had to stop using it. It gets into moods where it refuses to list new Mentions or DMs. I have to quit and reload it to get it to recognize them, and today, it still refused to bring up my latest DMs. It also likes to hang up and start repeating tweets, or just freeze altogether. The last straw today was when it dedided to repeat the last few hundred tweets SEVERAL TIMES. Please fix it! I miss it already.
Recent change to links in tweets has ruined tweetdeck
As of a couple days ago, you can no longer read more than a few words of what is being linked in someone’s tweet — you no longer see the actual link. You see what sort of looks like a Quote Tweet box. Except it’s not helpful like a Quote Tweet box. You see a few words from the headline of the link. But what is the point of seeing just a few words of what is being linked?? How is that helpful? It gives you just enough context to be *totally* confused. Please fix this! I wish I could show a screencap of how completely useless this new feature is. It does not help in any way and is far more confusing than anything else.
It's Abandonware. Move on people.
Some feedback below for developers, if they care.
EDIT: last updated 3 years ago! Haha! Never mind then.
The dark theme is burning my eyes out. There is too much contrast. Font color is pure white, make it whitish. Look at other apps with dark mode for inspiration. Take a look at App Store reviews and their color theme, for example. Much more pleasant to look at.
This app is just a web page in (bad) disguise. Menus especially don't look nor feel native. Their styling is also always white, even if you select the dark theme in the app.
With it being a web app, use "user-select: none", please! Often I inadvertently select text and pieces of UI because you are allowed to select everything just like on a typical web page. This is not a good thing. It's OK to be able to copy a tweet, but it should be well defined.
No menu bar icon.
Notifications don't show up in notification center.
OK, I'm back to using that other unofficial twitter app, will check back in 6 months.
Why add a non-useful feature?
That makes me have to close the app to escape out of it? Previous versions, when one would click a link to such as a news article/site, it would open said link in my browser, automatically, but now it opens a browser view IN tweetdeck, which would be great except it ALSO opens it in my browser, AND is not possible to close in tweetdeck without closing the entire app as far as I've found. There is zero documentation or discoverable means to close a webpage view once it's opened in the app which disrupts reading through tweets.
The Best App for Managing Multiple Accounts on a Mac
By Douglas Karr
The native Twitter app is a disaster… eventually starving OSX of resources until it becomes unresponsive and you have to kill it. With TweetDeck I haven’t had an issue. I manage half a dozen accounts on it and have tens of thousands of followers and it just keeps ticking. I especially LOVE the team management built in. That’s a feature you’d typically have to purchase an enterprise social media license for and it’s free on TweetDeck. I wish they’d retire the default app and use TweetDeck instead!
Recent "fix" didn't work
Previous update to TweetDeck started causing links to open in main window. (Had to guess that "Delete" key would get me out since there was no indication how to leave that screen.) Recent update said it would fix that problem. I'm here to say - Nope! Didn't work. Still opening links in the main window. Also tends to crash randomly after running for a while. Only really "good" thing about the app is that it will stream my timeline in time order (as opposed to Twitter app which shows stuff at random.)
Buggy and they’ve broken the better alteratves with API changes.
It continues to be very buggy. I find myself shutting it down and restarting it several times a day. To add insult to injury, they’ve crippled their APIs so that the applications that used to work (e.g. TweetBot) do not work any more: Live updates have been removed from the API, so you need to manually refresh TweetBot every time you tweet something or want to see what’s going on—maybe that’s okay on a cellphone, but no on an app. This is a baldfaced move on the part of a monopoly to eliminate the competition. This piece of garbage is now the only game in town. Completely unacceptable.
