Sharing content on TweetDeck should be quick and easy, so we’ve created a New Tweet panel to make it easier to Tweet, send DMs, and preview images to share.

Larger and more flexible previews

Many Twitter users take advantage of embedded media to create powerful and engaging Tweets, and TweetDeck has an option to view these media in-line. Today, we bring you an upgrade to introduce larger and more flexible previews to make your media shine.

Media previews on TweetDeck used to appear as small thumbnails that you could turn on and off from the settings panel.

Flight is a new JavaScript framework conjured up by the folks at Twitter. At TweetDeck we have had the opportunity to work with a pre-release version of Flight over the past few months and have now shifted all new development to Flight.


User specific search filters

We’ve updated our column filters and search functionality in our Web and Chrome apps with a new section of “User” filters. Along with this we’ve reorganised the column edit and search builder interfaces so that the content filters are now collected together in a “Content” section and the alerting options are together in “Alert” - collectively providing the most powerful suite of filters and search operators we’ve ever shipped.
