9 More Features I Want to See in TweetDeck
This is the continuation to my post, 10 Features I want to see in TweetDeck that I wrote for Twitip.com (please visit Twitip for Features 1-10). I’m offering this continuation here because a friend of mind constantly complains about the length of my posts and I thought that offering all 19 would be too long. So here are 11-19. Enjoy, and let me know what you think in the comments.
11. IM Integration
Problem: I can’t IM from Twitter.
Solution: Add IM functionality.
12. List (History) of Links Clicked
Problem: I often look for tweets with links that I’ve previously clicked, but can’t find them.
Solution: Provide a column showing all of the tweets containing links that I’ve clicked. Also need to see who tweeted them and when, and provide a Retweet button so I can forward them.
13. List of Lists
Problem: I don’t like the way lists are handled in TweetDeck.
Solution: Offer a column providing a list of all my lists and the lists I am on.
14. Show Followed/Unfollowed Dates
Problem: I often don’t know when someone started following me, when I started following them, or if and when they may have stopped following me.
Solution: I would like to see all of this info.
15. Favorite Tweeter’s Column
Problem: There are some people whom I really enjoy or simply need to follow closely, but I don’t want to add yet another Search Column.
Solution: Provide a column of my favorite tweeters (I know this could be a list, but as mentioned, I don’t like the way lists are implemented. Also, the list I want to see will show the tweeters themselves, not their tweets (unless I expand them).
16. Missing Tweets
Problem: TweetDeck misses massive numbers of tweets. Although this is sometimes a Twitter problem, I’m not convinced this is entirely their fault.
Solution: Fix how TweetDeck pulls tweets from Twitter or add a “more” button when there are gaps in the timeline so I can back-fill them.
17. Better iPhone Integration
Problem: I live on my iPhone and while I love that desktop TweetDeck syncs with iPhone TweetDeck, the iPhone version is not only incredibly sluggish, but it misses even more tweets than the desktop version.
Solution: Fix the bugs in the iPhone version and how it pulls tweets from Twitter.
18. Show Tweets Replied to in a Column
Problem: I often like to look at tweets that I’ve replied to, but it’s inefficient to have to search through all my tweets to find them.
Solution: Provide a column that compiles only the tweets I’ve replied to.
19. Analytics, Analytics, Analytics
Problem: Just knowing that someone clicked on a link is not good enough. I want to see every bit of data that can possibly be extracted from Twitter regarding the tweets I’m sending and receiving.
Solution: I’m not going to list all the types of data that I would like to see (no blog is big enough), but a comprehensive suite, like what PeopleBrowsr offers is critical.
Tighter Integration with Facebook
Problem: Let’s face it, Facebook is an important platform and while TweetDeck added Facebook features last year, it’s not doing much to help me manage my Facebook account or Fan pages.
Solution: TweetDeck was built with Twitter in mind, but it now absolutely MUST offer tighter integration with Facebook. I need to manage not only my account, including having columns for my various lists, but I need to be able to manage several different Fan pages including having access to page analytics.
