Tweet Deck

I am sad.

On my personal laptop, the MacBook Pro, I keep two things open at all times. One is a browser, Vivaldi, with a regular set of tabs; Gmail, this blog, Flickr, Trello, Wordle, and a couple of others. The other item is TweetDeck. I have columns for my personal account and the Lizardfish account that never gets used. I have the window sized so I only see Home, Notifications, and User for my personal account. I have to scroll to the right to see the Lizardfish stuff.

Today when I logged in there was a banner across the top of the screen stating that TweetDeck for Mac will be leaving this Earth and moving to the great beyond on July 1st. There is a web version of TweetDeck but I don’t like it. It’s basically the same thing but I just don’t like it.

I am Twitter sad.

Then again, if that slimeball Elon Musk buys Twitter and lets the fascist back on I will be deleting it anyway, so maybe this is just a tiny part of the grand conspiracy. I could always try the official Twitter app too. I don’t know. I’m just sad.


I just installed the official Twitter for Mac app from the MacStore. It’s free. It’s also only one column. I continue to be Twitter sad, but it’s better than using the browser, I guess. Who knows. Maybe I’ll just go back to twitter.com.
