Twitter’s TweetDeck gets a makeover
TweetDeck’s new features include:
- You can now reply to multiple users mentioned in a single tweet by simply clicking the “reply” button.
- You can preview your image before tweeting it and remove it by simply clicking the small ‘x’ in the image’s upper right-hand corner.
- When sharing a link, the URL will appear at full length while you draft your tweet, but the site will automatically register its length at 22 characters. This means that you can ensure you’re sending out the right link without calculating how much room is left to type.
- TweetDeck will auto-generate usernames and hashtags as you type.
The new features will roll out gradually.
