Perpetual Beta: TweetDeck

4 May

In web 2.0, the software is improved overtime without no installation or no upgrades needed. When devices connect to the internet, the software becomes the services no longer product anymore. Also, the new features release often to respond the user’s feedback and to package bug fixes. All that I mentioned are part of the “Perpetual Beta” pattern.

One examples of this practice is TweetDeck. Tweetdeck is a personal real time browser which is very useful way to connect with your contacts with Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Foursquare, MySpace and more. If you want to follow your friend on these sites, may be Tweetdeck will be a page that you will open all day long.

Tweetdeck is one of the most popular twitter clients, uses Twitter API to send, receive tweets and view profile. It separates the page into the pane and shows what you want to see at once. You can split the main feed (all tweets) into specific topic or group that is more easily managed. After you create the additional column, it will automatically update to keep you follow the twitter threads easier and more enjoyable.


There are so many updated versions of Tweetdeck since it was launched in 2009. Tweetdeck incrementally releases new version and gains the feedback from the users as a co-developer. In addition, Tweetdeck uses Tweetdeck champions via their platform for the users to be part of a group of testers for new features. Every time a user uses Tweetdeck they may be a real time tester and co-developer of new features and services.

Tweetdeck is still ongoing developed, especially in other devices such as Android. Now Tweetdeck is available to download in Desktop, iphone, ipad and Android. Moreover, on May 2, 2011 Twitter just bought Tweetdeck so without doubt that Tweetdeck will become an official Twitter Application.

Therefore, TweetDeck is currently one of the best applications that deal with managing multiple social-network accounts and definitely very useful tools for you to monitor and enjoy your social life.

    wow, its like a social networking dashboard. but i just wonder if you have the same friend in 4 square, twitter and facebook. if the friend checks in to a place, then all 3 of the apps will update at the same time right? wouldnt that be repetition of newsfeeds to see him check in 3 times at the same place?

    Yes, you can see repetition updated from the same friend. It might be some boring thing but that is what Tweetdeck does to bring all your social networks closer at once.

    hey i read somewhere that twitter is now going to own tweetdeck. do you think this might change tweetdecks userbility?

      I am wondering how twitter will do with tweetdeck as well. But I believe they will leave it how it currently is. Because I think the reason that twitter bought tweetdeck is just twitter doesn’t want tweetdeck belong to Ubermedia which is now owned several popular twitter clients.

    An obvious picture of Perpetual Beta. Also, It can be used on many devices such as iPhone, iPad, Destop or android. I really like this example that users can link their social media account into on the social dashboard.

    Now everything is about bring similar thing into one place. Like making life easier instead of having to go to every single application or website that you have an account, just go to one application that have all your update such as TweetDeck.

    I didnt use TweetDeck until my cousin talked about it and showed me how it work… I use TweetDeck in phone and I believe it is very useful tool. I do really like it

    I could say that statistics and reliability could be the disadvantages of tweetDeck….What do you think?

    Also, I wonder if you have compared TweetDeck with another similiar application like HootSuite?
