TweetDeck

Welcome to the TweetDeck Learning Guide, where I’m going to walk you through using TweetDeck and making it work for you.

The tweet deck main window. This is really the reason you want to use TweetDeck over in browser twitter, but before I start exploring all the amazing things TweetDeck can do, I want to walk you through the basics of using TweetDeck to do the sorts of things you’d do normally on Twitter.

If you haven’t noticed by now, if you click certain image links in TweetDeck they open in the program instead of another browser. This is cool because it streamlines your media consumption, and makes it easy to immediately respond to the person sharing the picture!

Of course, you want to be able to do this for other users, so how do we do it?

First step is to open your compose window and type your message. Leave some room for hashtags and the link that will be generated for you!

So you have your message, now to upload the picture! See the camera button? Hit that and a file search dialogue box opens for you to pick your photo or video file. Once chosen, the following window opens in TweetDeck.

From here, you have a few options. You can upload now by hitting the up arrow, which will immediately upload the picture to one of the many url shortened picture servers (I’ll cover your options later!) and insert the link directly into your tweet.

Or you can wait and just hit the Send button and it will upload the photo and insert the link to the end of your tweet.
