TweetDeck by Twitter has received an update for OS X. The app is designed for publishers, marketers and power users of Twitter, and features a customizable layout for the social networking platform. Tweetdeck v3.8.4 offers the ability to find locally trending topics for Regions and Cities, adding a column based on the trend.
Twitter has made a few changes to some of its services recently, namely in the profile pages and its Tweetdeck app. The company announced in April that it was testing a new profile layout for the web, starting with a small user group. These new profiles have now been rolled out to all Twitter users. Tweetdeck has also seen some changes, adding new features to post scheduling within the app.
Twitter has posted an updated Mac version of TweetDeck, its more advanced client software. The v3.0.2 release makes a number of interface changes, most notably adding a sidebar to the lefthand side. This lets users quickly jump between columns, instead of having to scroll through them. Columns can be quickly rearranged by dragging them around within the sidebar.
Yahoo has redesigned its search page with a more streamlined appearance. The update, which will roll out to US-based users today, uses a much flatter design than before, pushes the search results higher up the page, and also introduces a navigation bar to other Yahoo services at the top. Aside from changing the design to something that seemingly borrows from the Google design playbook, the Yahoo blog claims that some behind-the-scenes work has also led to improved loading times for results.
Social network Twitter has updated the Mac version of TweetDeck, its most advanced official client app. The v2.3.1 release brings Mac features up to par with those for Chrome and other platforms, for instance adding Typeahead to searches, predicting what a person is about to type. An extension of this is People Search, presenting a list of people in a user's Twitter community based on entered text.
Twitter has released simultaneous updates for the Mac, Windows, Chrome, and web versions of TweetDeck, its more advanced client software. The main change is the addition of a new theme which casts black text on a white background, instead of the standard white text on gray. A simple toggle control flips the theme back and forth at will.
Twitter has released TweetDeck 1.5, an update of its optional desktop client. Web, Windows, Chrome, and Mac versions of the client are available. The new code is meant to speed up navigation, for instance by arranging columns in a single row for quick scrolling using the scrollbar. Clicking a new Columns button displays a full list of open columns, and arrows to either side let users scroll several columns at a time.
Twitter late at night restored TweetDeck's access after pulling it down over a serious bug. In a statement given to The Verge, Twitter said that there had been a bug that led to a "very small number" of users getting control of others' accounts, up to the hundreds in at least one case. The flaw had been random and didn't see anyone's passwords compromised.
