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.

With the increased attacks to gain control of Twitter accounts.
There are a few things that may help while we wait for Twitter to get a handle on security.
There are a number of link scanners that can be used to fight rogue links within Twitter. These are the two that I know about.
If you do not trust or have the link scanner software, do not click on suspicious links within Twitter. If your unsure don’t click.
There is a firefox plugin called LongURL Mobile Expander. In it’s own words:
You should always know where a link takes you before clicking on it. Services like TinyURL.com make that difficult. LongURL Mobile Expander uses the LongURL.org web services to let you know where shortened links *really* go. This can be found at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8636
The other thing I would suggest people do is go through their account connections http://twitter.com/account/connections and remove connections that are no longer required.
Change your password regularly.
These are things that may help while we wait for Twitter to concentrate on stability and security. We all like shiny shiny like lists and update notifications, but stability and security for me first please.
Here is a tutorial on how to create a stand alone Seesmic Web Application using Fluid. I am a huge fan of the Seesmic Desktop app. So here you can make your own Web app.
Multi account handling from within TweetDeck iPhone app.
This is a quick explanation as to why I made the OxTwestival video I did. Yes I have got all above my station and think I am a director doing a why I filmed it this way lol.
Well the final one was not what I originally had planned or had originally filmed.
The video below explains. I hope you enjoy the final video.
Feel free to comment on any of the videos
August 21st 2008 at 09:36 I stepped into the Twitter arena. Happy 1st Birthday to my Twitter persona.
With that in mind I thought I would interview myself:
Have you learned anything new about yourself? No.
Have you changed? Yes.
Are you going to tell the nice people how you have changed? No, it is a personal thing. Let’s just say I am more human.
Do you enjoy Twitter? When it works, yes. I did not like it when they changed the @reply system and I still do not like the lack of seeing all conversations.
How would you make Twitter better? I would invest in the stability of the product before prettying up the site. Functionality is more important than looks in this case.
Are you selling anything on Twitter? No
Well if you are not selling anything why are you using Twitter? I am using Twitter to converse with folk and learn from them. I originally just wanted to use Twitter in a professional way, just for my IT tech stuff. You know ask IT related questions and share ideas. But that soon became secondary. Why? Well I enjoyed the conversations more than the geekery. Connecting with another human half way across the world is awesome. Connecting with a person halfway across the world and sharing the same ideas and views or debating even more awesome.
Do you think you will be on Twitter in 5 years time? Not to the extent I am these days. I may use other products that feed into Twitter but I am not sure. Those who know me know I have a constant struggle balancing the online offline stuff. I really should unhook more and go off and exercise. Also the benefit of unhooking means when you return you have something to talk about. So my future plans for me and Twitter are up in the air. I could leave tomorrow and not come back, who knows.
What was your first Twitter Avavtar? This one (pictured below)
What is your current Twitter Avatar? This one (pictured below) I changed it from red to yellow because I think it looks cleaner.
I just want to say a big thank you to those who have put up with me. I know earlier in the year I had lots of ups and downs, there were reasons for that and those reasons were in an earlier blog post called “Hell” I think I have seen the back of that now.
I am also really excited to be working with Steph on doodurls without Twitter we would never have met. So thank you Twitter for that.
But I really mean it thank you to all those who still follow, I hate the term follow so I shall say a huge thank you to those who have remained my friend through this year that I have been on Twitter. You do mean a great deal to me.
Why did you not vlog this? I did not vlog this as my first blog was a written one so it seemed fitting that this one should be.
