Starting today, when you’re logged in to any Twitter website, like twitter.com or analytics.twitter.com, you’ll no longer need to log in to TweetDeck separately. Now, when you move from TweetDeck to Twitter websites, or from these websites to TweetDeck, you’ll be automatically logged in — making it even easier to move between the tools you use daily. For more information about how this works, check out our Help Center. This change is rolling out to everyone over the coming weeks.
We’ve been working on infrastructure projects like this to ensure we have a stable foundation to continue improving TweetDeck in the future. Over the last year, we’ve shipped features such as TweetDeck Teams, group Direct Messages, and a confirmation step before Tweeting, as well as new search filters to make it easier to surface Vines, GIFs, Periscopes, and older content.
To better focus on enhancing your TweetDeck experience, we’ll no longer support a standalone Windows app. If you use Windows, you’ll still be able to visit TweetDeck on the web — nothing is changing about TweetDeck itself, just where you access it from. This change will take effect on April 15th.
Of course, you can still easily access TweetDeck on the web by pinning TweetDeck to your taskbar:
- Open tweetdeck.com in Chrome
- Click Customize and control > More tools > Add to taskbar
- You can now launch TweetDeck directly from your taskbar
Clarification (March 21): On April 15th, you will no longer be able to access the standalone Windows app. If you use Windows, you can still visit TweetDeck on the web at tweetdeck.twitter.com.
