The Best App for Managing Multiple Accounts on a Mac
The native Twitter app is a disaster… eventually starving OSX of resources until it becomes unresponsive and you have to kill it. With TweetDeck I haven’t had an issue. I manage half a dozen accounts on it and have tens of thousands of followers and it just keeps ticking. I especially LOVE the team management built in. That’s a feature you’d typically have to purchase an enterprise social media license for and it’s free on TweetDeck. I wish they’d retire the default app and use TweetDeck instead!
Why is it such a POS?
This is my favorite Twitter app by far, but over the last few months, its quality has degraded to the point that I’ve had to stop using it. It gets into moods where it refuses to list new Mentions or DMs. I have to quit and reload it to get it to recognize them, and today, it still refused to bring up my latest DMs. It also likes to hang up and start repeating tweets, or just freeze altogether. The last straw today was when it dedided to repeat the last few hundred tweets SEVERAL TIMES. Please fix it! I miss it already.
I'm not sure when it happened, but over the past several weeks I've been noticing that the app has been getting hung up more often than not. Certain windows refresh like they should, but others (like my timeline) hardly refresh at all -- and usually only if I quit out of the app and open it back up. I haven't changed anything in Preferences, but something weird is going on with the app.
Otherwise this has been an awesome app for as long as I've had it...
