TweetDeck Gets New Look

Twitter has debuted a whole new look for TweetDeck lending the social media dashboard a “fresh” appearance that goes hand-in-hand with functionality.

“In line with Twitter’s own design aesthetic, this update delivers a lighter and simpler TweetDeck design,” said product manager Sharath Bulusu in a blog post. “We moved the top bar to the side, and created some significant usability improvements around column reordering and easier navigation.”

The new tweet button, located at the top left of the bar, is followed by the search icon. The icons beneath represent the columns users have in their TweetDeck.


“Click on a column icon to move the display to that column, which is especially handy if you have a lot of columns,” Bulusu said. “These column icons also scroll up and down in the sidebar so you can interact with all your columns, regardless of how many you have or how large or small your screen is. For very quick column reordering you can drag a column icon up or down to change its position.”

By clicking on the icons at the bottom of the sidebar, users can expand the sidebar to show the titles of each button and the column names.

To open the list window, users must click on the lists icon.

Users can also click on the settings icon to change TweetDeck to suit their needs or add more Twitter accounts.
