According to many reports, Tweetdeck 1.0 was rolled out and is drawing some criticism as features have been removed from the app.

After hearing these reports i'm avoiding installing it.

Anyone tried it?

I have tried it. My advice is DON'T UPGRADE if you like any of the features of the old app. The new TweetDeck is completely different. It is only good for maintaining Twitter accounts now. If you used TweetDeck for interacting with other SNS properties like LinkedIn, MySpace, Facebook then forget it. Those features have been removed or hobbled.

I'm testing out Seesmic now...

What was the last OK version of TweetDeck before the "All New" version?

...because Twitter bought Tweetdeck in May 2011.

Sure, we knew that [webmasterworld.com] ;) It was unfortunate that they decided to eviscerate the best SNS tool on the market for advanced users. I really haven't found anything to replace it.

It looks like [hootsuite.com...] is an alternative that supports multiple networks. I'm not into tweeting enough to know how good it is though.

HootSuite was one I tried and quickly gave up on. It's browser based on the PC, and I found it too slow compared to good old TweetDeck. Also, it costs $5.99/month if you want to use it seriously. The free account is limited to 5 columns of info, which is way too little for me.
