Comments from those who selected Tweetdeck as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

“I’m a big fan of Twitter as a means of connecting, but the most recent updates to the interface make it an unpleasant experience. I’ve used Tweetdeck for years as my primary desktop Twitter app because of the way its easy to set up # channels, etc. The key benefit now is that promoted tweets don’t appear in my timelines” Andrew Jacobs, UK https://lostanddesperate.com/2019/09/04/top-10-tools-for-learning-2019/

“This is the first social media app that I launch on my computer. I use it for both personal and professional learning and especially like the ‘lists’ feature to view and participate in a variety of ‘streams of conversations’.” Taruna Goel, Canada https://tarunagoel.blogspot.com/2019/09/my-top-10-learning-tools-2019.html

“Twitter is the place where I quickly and easily keep up with what’s happening in the world but I do prefer to use rather than the web interface – where I’ve set up different columns for my news feed, mentions, hashtags I follow, etc. This makes it much easier for me to see the overall picture of what’s happening in the moment.” Jane Hart, UK https://modernworkplacelearning.com/magazine/janes-top-ten-2019/

“For me, it’s the only way I like to access Twitter.” Learning Content Developer, Spain

“Tweetdeck is my preferred site to read Twitter.” Teacher Trainer, Netherlands

“I keep different Twitter lists, searches and hashtags for learning. Tweetdeck’s interface works fine for me showing all them in columns on the same page.” L&D Practitioner, Spain

“Social learning, personal network learning (PLN)” Learning Ecologies Designer, Puerto Rico

Pre-2013 comments

“I’m officially hooked to Twitter and use Tweetdeck to organize and group those I follow. My best column: eLearning, of course! Not only is Twitter great for the occasional laugh, but also a great source of information and links. Have a question? Ask your Twitter network! Warning: Tweetdeck does bog my old, creaky laptop down a bit.” Cammy Bean

“In the past, I’ve listed Twitter as the tool, but as my Twitter habit has led me to make greater use of hashtags and groups, Tweetdeck has become my tool of choice.” Rodd Lucie
