I've been using Tweetdeck for some time now. It's been a very nice application for Twitter and allows for me to keep my eye on multiple streams at once.
The last few weeks or so I've been experiencing some weirdness with Tweetdeck that I didn't use to before. The issue is that if I leave Tweetdeck open for the day, when I check back on it, I'll notice that it hasn't updated any tweets/streams in a number of hours. If I close and restart the app, suddenly there are a 1000 new entries and everything is up to date as it should be.
I've been trying to keep track of when it happens but haven't been able to pinpoint precisely how much time goes by before it stops updating feeds. From the moment its opened on my desktop to the time it takes before I realize things aren't being updated live... its usually about an hour or so. So you can understand my frustration with having to constantly close and reopen Tweetdeck a number of times each day just to get an updated view of tweets.
I'm using the latest version which is v2.5.3 and Twitter streaming is enabled in the application settings menu.
Like I said, I didn't have to worry about anything like this until about 3 weeks ago. Up to that point, the application would correctly live stream all tweets from each list/column. Has anyone else experienced this issue with Tweetdeck??
Well, you did help me somewhat. I'm going to try out the Chrome Tweetdeck extension and see if that fixes this issue. If it does, I'll just keep Tweetdeck running in Chrome on a seperate window. And uninstall the actual application off my system.
