So TweetDeck used to be pretty much the most-awesome PC desktop application for accessing Twitter, maintaining all kinds of inline searches, and doing all kinds of shiny things with that social media site that otherwise would have required multiple browser windows, way too many button clicks, or some other time-sink-ing inconvenience. Then they got bought by Twitter. Then it all went to hell. Functionalities got stripped away. The user interface got stupid. And the whole experience deteriorated to the point where I was casting about, searching for alternatives.
Well, I found one – the original, v0.38.2 Adobe.air TweetDeck install. All of the old functionalities, all of the old design, all of the old setups, all of the old options, and none of the new idiocy. Alternatively, you can download the file here – my anti-virus promises it is clean.
Obviously, this version will not be receiving any further updates in the future, but considering what Twitter considered an “update”, would you really want any?
