Overall Satisfaction with TweetDeck

I use TweetDeck to monitor our own Twitter accounts as well as to track Twitter lists and newsfeed. I use it personally but it is not used across the organisaiton.
  • Convenient column view allows you to separate mentions, messages, feeds and lists in one screen
  • Allows you to add multiple accounts which you can publish to, retweet and favourtie content
  • Easy to set up and get going
  • Can't open Twitter accounts profiles in a new tab/window easily
  • No link shortener
  • No statistics
  • Convenience for monitoring Twitter lists and feeds
  • Single view of multiple accounts
  • Easy to set up and get started
TweetDeck is comparative with the options available in Hootsuite Free edition, although the fact that Hootsuite allows you to monitor and publish on other platforms is more convenient. I created a TweetDeck account when I began using Meltwater Buzz as I missed the column views from Hootsuite so I really only use it for monitoring the lists and users I follow.
I'm about to move onto a new paid platform (which does have colum views) so may not continue using TweetDeck if the new platform provides what I need.
TweetDeck is great if you want a single view of many accounts or sections of one account. You can scroll across the page easily to reveal extra columns and quickly retweet or favourite posts by others. I don't personally use this to post or schedule Tweets, but I can see it would be a useful free tool to do this also.
