Twitter's latest innovations are not everyone's cup of tea, especially if you are an avid tweeter. But it seems like the popular social network is bringing some goodness for those that prefer the older interface. After acquiring Tweetdeck last year, the company has recently decided to release a new version of the Twitter client for Android and iOS.
We have no official details just yet. Tweetdeck has started looking for new team members, though. The job listing was posted recently, stating the following:
The TweetDeck team, working from London, is looking for new team members to work on our cutting edge Android app. Were building the next generation of a suite of clients that millions of people love and use everyday. Youll work on our small team, own the projects that you work on, and have a great time shipping products which change the way people communicate.
This will come as good news if you are not a fan of the official Twitter app. After its most recent changes, the Direct Message section has been hidden. The social network is now focusing on new adopters' growth by focusing on the “Discover” section. Tweetdeck could be considered an official app, as well – It is now under Twitter's ownership.
If you are not liking the hidden Direct Message section and random popular tweets, just sit tight. This Tweetdeck update should get started soon. The company seems to have already filled positions for the iOS team, and the Android team will should be ready soon.
But just out of curiosity – What do you guys think of the new Twitter setup? Do you prefer the older style, or are you liking the Discover section and new interface? Do you prefer the Twitter app, or Tweetdeck?
