Since Twitter has announced discontinuation of their TweetDeck client for Windows, it was clear that the world needed a hero.
But instead, I appeared and just decided to make a replacement. So here it is!
Besides supporting most functionality of TweetDeck, TweetDuck has seen several improvements over the official client!
Pop-up notifications now have a blue bar which indicates when the window is going to disappear, or display the next tweet in the queue!
Moving your mouse over the notification stops the timer too, if you need more time to read.
It is now possible to precisely configure the pop-up notification location and duration!
Don't worry - you can select Custom and move the window wherever you want, TweetDuck will remember it.
TweetDuck is much more reliable and configurable for multi‑monitor setups!
TweetDuck is constantly updated with small tweaks and enhancements that make your experience just so much better when compared to alternatives.
Released under the MIT License, TweetDuck is not only completely free, but also open source!
You can download TweetDuck for Windows. Please, report issues and feedback to the repository.

TweetDuck requires .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile or newer. It was tested on Windows 7, but should work on all Windows systems since Windows XP. The program requires at least 300 MB of free space on your drive, 512 MB of RAM, and a processor from about 2003.
The program will detect an existing installation of TweetDeck and will let you Migrate & Purge it, which completely uninstalls TweetDeck and replaces its icons on desktop and task bar, or give you other options if you do not want to uninstall TweetDeck yet.
Before reporting an issue, please see the list of common problems and their solutions below.
If the website appears malformed or you see black rectangles, please right-click anywhere in the window, select Settings, go to the Advanced tab, and disable Hardware Acceleration. This can affect performance, but the program should render correctly.
Full version of TweetDuck was released on April 15. TweetDuck will continue getting updates with new features and bugfixes, so please share your ideas and feedback!
Here is a rough list of planned features:
Nope - here is a side-by-side comparison!
