    Would be nice to try it…but HOW?? Don’t see any download links or updates in the Tweetdeck app.

    Cool, thanks, Anand. Now if the desktop app would get updated to the same interface, that’d be awesome. 🙂

    I stopped using this when Twitter bought it. It used to be a stand-alone program that you could also monitor other social sites like Facebook. Now it’s just for Twitter and uses your browser. I’m now using Hootsuite. I keep a separate browser just for it and can include monitoring/responding to many sites like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc.
