Twitter is actively working on a “big overhaul” of its TweetDeck platform, which allows you to arrange lists and feeds into easy-to-read vertical rows, and it intends to share more about the project publicly later this year, product chief Kayvon Beykpour said in an interview with The Verge published Tuesday.
TweetDeck, as one of the oldest and originally third-party account management apps for the platform, hasn’t seen much in the method of design or significant feature changes in years. The application launched 12 years prior and was procured by Twitter in 2011, and it’s pretty much as yet unchanged vertical grid viewer for your different Twitter feeds it began as. Generally, Twitter has ported over new functions added to its main website and mobile apps while keeping the core TweetDeck design moderately static.
That appears to be changing. Beykpour and the product team remember they haven’t “given TweetDeck a lot of love recently,” and they’re effectively working on another TweetDeck they intend to flaunt not long from now. It’s important for a more extensive push to improve Twitter’s developer tools and repair its relationship with application producers, with the last being a long-term contention between Twitter and the more extensive software development community. (Beykpour’s answer doesn’t indicate whether the new TweetDeck will be released for the current year or just reviewed for the public.)
It’s not satisfactory whether this new TweetDeck would include a refreshed visual design, every single new features, or both. It’s likewise begging to be proven wrong whether Twitter plans to eventually charge cash for TweetDeck; a Bloomberg report a month ago said the organization was considering a premium version of TweetDeck it could append a subscription fee for.
Whatever form the new application takes, it will be a breath of fresh air for TweetDeck’s longtime clients who might want, at the very least, a fresh coat of paint.
