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.
