Twitter considers enhanced version of TweetDeck for professionals

Twitter said in an emailed statement that it is conducting a survey "to assess the interest in a new, more enhanced version" of TweetDeck, the application for power users of Twitter that lets people monitor multiple timelines in one interface, manage multiple accounts and schedule tweets for posting later.

By enhanced, they mean with a paid subscription of some sort. A phrase that indicate a paid pro version is "ad-free experience."

In other words, a subscription-based pro version of tweetdeck is being considered.

I often wonder if tweedeck needs to serve other social media services, too, and that would make it more attractive than simply a twitter tool on steroids.

It originally did until Twitter bought the company for $40m and stripped out that functionality.

Originally conceived by an external company as a standalone program capable of displaying multiple social media channels, Tweetdeck was bought by Twitter in 2011 for $40m. Twitter promptly gutted it of all other social media functionality except its own, then stripped out some of that functionality, before finally killing the desktop version altogether. It later resurfaced as a web app.

Oh, yes, and I was one of the early adopters of the original tweetdeck. I remember it well, and was very sad to see it get stripped of its functionality.

Twitter seems to be making the mistake that it can function on its own in its own ecosystem. Wake up twitter, you're part of the greater social media mix, and you have a really useful tool. It won't be long before the major players chip into that more and more.

I think I remember a feature where you could type in a number of tweets & set a cron to publish at certain intervals. I could never get it to work though. Didn't use it after that.

Same here. That's how you kill a company. I really can't see the benefit of Tweetdeck anymore.
