TweetDeck release v0.33.0 of their popular Twitter desktop client. The changes are a plenty.
A huge raft of improvements in functionality. A brand new API monitor that looks at each of your columns you have open, my poor iPhone picture below.
The amount of media that can be played or viewed from directly within TweetDeck has increased, most notably YouTube. The image below shows you some of the new features within TweetDeck.
I have always loved the ability to use 12Seconds from within TweetDeck.
There is still the ability to monitor and post to your Facebook. You can also keep track on your MySpace and LinkedIn.
The only improvement I would love to see in TweetDeck would be the ability to collapse the columns.
Go play with TweetDeck, there are loads of hidden features that I have not touched on. You can find TweetDeck here. I did notice this version of TweetDeck seems quicker. This must be due to the new way it interacts with the Twitter API.
New video below on all the new functions of TweetDeck.
