One of the developers for TweetDeck, Iain Dodsworth, explained why he appreciates the latest version of TweetDeck: "I was missing tweets from my real friends, who were drowned out by other people I was following. I decided to fix this for myself by splitting/segmenting the feed out to make it more manageable. And then along the way added new features such as Summize search and integrated Twitter-based services. I sent the app to ten people who I knew and they were extremely positive about it and it has grown from there."
