With so many tweets done on this pre-release, I had to find out what was going on. Well, for you TweetDeck fans, a pre-release of the “next” TweetDeck (which includes facebook integration) is now available for download and testing. Please note that, this is not a major release so do it at your own risk.
Here is an excerpt from TweetDeck’s blog:
As the title suggests, v0.24.1 includes the first elements of Facebook integration into TweetDeck. This integration consists of two elements.
Firstly you can click on the Facebook icon at the top and, once you have signed into Facebook and given TweetDeck authorisation, this will add a new column full of each of your friends most recent status update which updates automatically once a minute. From here you can email the update out to anyone, tweet it out over twitter, view the users online status and if they are online right now click on their name (or the green online status indicator) to open Facebook chat right within TweetDeck.
The other element is the ability to direct your tweet/update to post to twitter or facebook or both directly within the tweet window. Note: direct messages will not be sent via Facebook even if you have the Facebook checkbox ticked.
So, if you are interested in testing this pre-release, you can obtain the direct link to install TweetDeck with Facebook Integration here.
