FREE Social Media Sofware


Tweet Deck is a FREE tool provided by Twitter. You can manage multiple Twitter accounts using this software.

Since Twitter didn’t have anything like Facebook where a person can have multiple Pages under one account, Twitter created Tweetdeck so there is no logging in and out of multiple Twitter profiles. You can instantly connect to what’s most important to you. Follow your friends, experts, favorite celebrities, and breaking news. You can schedule Tweets in advance.
