TweetDeck Platform Overview

TweetDeck is a social media dashboard application for management of Twitter accounts. You can use this platform in order to monitor specific keywords and hashtag related to your interest.

TweetDeck gives you a dashboard that displays separate columns of activity from your Twitter accounts. For example, you might see separate columns for your home feed, your notifications, your direct messages and your activity — all in one place on the screen. You can also reorder these columns, delete them and add new ones from other Twitter accounts or for specific things like hashtags, trending topics, scheduled tweets and more.

You can basically design your TweetDeck dashboard any way you like that best fits your tweeting needs. It saves you time and energy from needing to sign in separately to each account, switch between pages and post everything separately. Here the list of different columns views:
