Last week, Twitter rolled out new designs for Twitter.com, TweetDeck and both Android and iPhone Twitter apps. According to Twitter, the purpose of the design overhaul was to make everything more inviting to new users and expanding on better functionality.
So far, user feedback has been pretty positive concerning Twitter.com and the mobile apps... but the TweetDeck client update is a completely different story.
After I updated TweetDeck, I was unpleasantly surprised to find a whole slew of features and customization settings removed from it. Despite my frustration with the removal of so many great features, the biggest problem I'm having is that TweetDeck seems to crash on me non-stop. I've noticed that @TweetDeck on Twitter hasn't tweeted in about three days since they launched the update, so I'm hoping that they're busy working out the kinks. Until then, I'll be using HootSuite. Who knows... I may even move to HootSuite permanently.
