TweetDeck (just for Twitter) is for a more frequent Twitter user. You can schedule tweets in advance, but there’s so much more. You can create different columns for content such as favorites, mentions, or specific hashtags. This allows you to easily see how people are reacting to your tweets. You can also connect multiple Twitter accounts to your TweetDeck. This is perfect if you have a personal account separate from your art business account.
