Is the (Windows 7) desktop Tweetdeck still supported?

Unlike the Mac and mobile platforms, Windows 7 doesn't have a native Twitter app other than Tweetdeck. But it appears that it's no longer available and only a web-based version of Tweetdeck exists. Is that the case? What else is there?

Looks like you can download it here.

Best answer: I still use it everyday, although two days ago the buttons disappeared for no apparent reason and they won't come back. But I see old versions available on

Response by poster: AppleTurnover that's the problem I'm having as well. I was hoping there might be a newer version but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Weird that you're having the same issue out of nowhere. The problem is TweetDeck just auto-updates on its own somehow sporadically, there's no way to check for updates or anything.

Hey, if you figure out a way to get it working normal again with all the buttons, any chance you could shoot me a PM and let me know what you did? I've been too lazy to roll back to 3.7.3 or older. (I currently have 3.9.9.)

In the interim, when I really need a properly running TweetDeck, I've been forced to use the web version.

I figured out why TweetDeck broke and thought of this thread. They changed "favorites" to "likes" and the star icons are now stars. It works just fine now!
