Tweetdeck has been on the move and has kept hip to the needs of its fans. “Fan’s” in my case are recruiters, but even if you are not a  Tweetdeck integration recruiter you can appreciate the developments that the Tweetdeck team continues to make. There are 3 new changes in the last few months that I find to be a big deal and worth mentioning here.

LinkedIn Integration

Sure LinkedIn has finally seen some of the light that has been shining and has mimicked the Twitter style updates to your LinkedIn network, but even more notable is the full integration of LinkedIn into your Tweetdeck dashboard. You can now dedicate one of your Tweetdeck columns to your LinkedIn feed. Tack and stay in touch with your LinkedIn connections on Tweetdeck.

Why is this important? Unless you are superman, there is seriously no way you are managing any sort of meaningful relationship with your LinkedIn connections. Mass emailing doesn’t cut it, and I’d argue it only weakens as semblance of a relationship you once had. This integration into Tweetdeck allows you follow and connect with your connections helping to create the connections you thought you once had.

Twitter Lists

With the newest addition to Twitter being Twitter lists which I talk about and demo here, Tweetdeck was quick to take this integration on. You have the opportunity to from within Tweetdeck, create, add and manage your Twitter lists, sort and follow from within a designated column and follow targeted conversations.

Geo-targeted  Tweets

This may be one of my favorite integrations yet. Certainly it offers many possibilities for recruiters but even with that, it’s just really cool to see where your tweeps are tweeting from.

Here’s a quick video breaking down the newest features. It’s not an original video, but why recreate the wheel?  I’m interested to learn your thoughts and views on the newest integrations.
