Tweetdeck, a third-party Twitter client which the giant social media network bought in 2011 is up for some new changes.
Tweetdeck is a much-needed and loved tool for social media managers thanks to its nifty power features – most of which have been ported to the official Twitter apps and web client such as tweet scheduling and switching between multiple accounts.
The platform is now set to get a big visual design overhaul and new features later this year. Twitter has been on a roll lately, quickly releasing new products and features and it looks like Tweetdeck hasn’t been forgotten.
In an interview with The Verge’s Nilay Patel, Twitter’s head of consumer product, Kayvon Beykpour said that they are working on revamping Tweetdeck.
We’re expecting either new features or a complete design overhaul of the platform that we’ll be seeing later this year.
“And we haven’t given TweetDeck a lot of love recently. That’s about to change; we’ve been working on a pretty big overhaul from the ground up of TweetDeck, and it’s something that we’re excited to share publicly sometime this year. And so that’s just an example of a Twitter-owned and operated service that we will continue investing in.”
Another thing we’re expecting is whether Twitter will introduce a subscription feature on Tweetdeck to supplement the revenue they get from Ads.
Just like the rest of you, I am looking forward to seeing how this pans out.
