Twitter recently revamped their design – some like, some don’t. It was supposed to make it easier to search, “Connect” and “Discover” people that were of interest, also quickly find what’s trending. However, users were frustrated that their direct messages (DM) were more difficult to find.
Twitter purchased TweetDeck last May, rumoured for about $50 million, and it’s now time for the company to take a stab at redesigning their Android app. A job listing on Twitter points to them “looking for new team members to work on our cutting edge Android app”. An update to the popular Twitter app is needed – the last TweetDeck for Android update was on September 15th, 2011, bringing it to version 126.96.36.199. So it’s been pushed to the side a bit. This new version is apparently going to be the “next generation” and teh successful candidate will “Pro-actively look for ways to make Twitter better”.
“About This Job

You’ll work on our small team, own the projects that you work on, and have a great time shipping products which change the way people communicate.”
No other details are listed in the job posting, nor when we can expect the new TweekDeck for Android to arrive.
