TweetDeck 2.0

Send Article to a Friend

Even though it will likely always play second fiddle to Twitter’s eponymous app, TweetDeck 2.0 offers some significant visual changes to the company’s column-based client. The new look comes thanks to a new light-colored theme, the capability to change font size (small, medium, and large only), and other design tweaks to improve legibility. Functional changes include removing tweets from people you unfollow or report as spammers, the capability to reposition pop-up windows, elimination of repeated retweets in Timeline columns, quieter notification sounds, and resolved display issues with Growl notifications.

On my 27 inch iMac screen, type set to large is still too small for my 47 year old eyesite!

Why would they only have three sizes and all of them are so tiny?!

The largest size on the old Twitter application v. 2.1.1 is bigger. That Twitter application lets users choose sizes 11-18!! (although, even there 11-36 would be better for those with sight impairments and normal humans who are over 40.)

Also, when you go to add a list as a column, the list of Lists (on left side of the dialog box) is cut off. It turns out the problem is the scroll bar is HIDDEN! Why do we have to mouse over to see the scroll bar in a prefs function?
