TweetDeck – Breathing New Life into Twitter for Me

I have had a love/hate relationship with Twitter since I first signed up in May 2007.  I found it at times to be intriguing but worthless, captivating but time consuming, fascinating but maddening.  I jumped around to different Twitter clients, including Twitbin, Twhirl and Flock.  I would completely go offline for awhile and then tweet like mad at other times.

One of my biggest complaints was the inability to follow a few friends or relevant subjects among the masses of tweets being exchanged in Twitterspace.  As the number of fellow Twitters I followed rose, the more difficult it became to keep track of anybody or anything.

Well, I am recently back on the Twitter bandwagon, thanks in a large part to TweetDeck, a Twitter client that allows me to specify a few groups of people to follow and a few searches that I might be interested in at a particular time. For me, it brings order out of chaos and rachets the Twitter experience upward a few notches.

Plus, Iain Dodsworth, the TweetDeck author, uses a really cool feedback forum to gather suggestions from the field.

Thanks Iain!
