We’ve got some good news to share with you. A new version of TweetDeck is available with some much wanted improvements, including a fix for the memory leak issue, and great new features including short url previews, Twitpic thumbnails, recording of 12seconds video clips and Facebook integration to make TweetDeck even more useful to you, our users. Plus TweetDeck is now recognised as the most popular application for Twitter driving 8.9% of tweets according to TweetRush. Plus with over 375,000 visits to TweetDeck.com last month and a growth rate of 32% we’re hoping to see this growth continue.
We know that many of our users have been experiencing problems with TweetDeck gobbling up memory and not releasing it. The memory leak issue has forced some users to re-start TweetDeck regularly and we’re really sorry about that. We’ve been listening and working hard, together with Adobe, making improvements to TweetDeck to fix the memory leak. Today we’re delighted to be able to tell you that the memory leak has been plugged and now the latest version of TweetDeck will peak at a certain level and won’t go any higher. So you can leave your TweetDeck running all day, all night, or forever if you really want to.
