tweetdeck

Tweetdeck, now an official Twitter app, is one of those social networking clients with a ton of features that may be a bit of overkill if you’re a casual user. It’s got a columnar interface with tons of customizability, letting you decide what, specifically, shows up in each column.

If you’ve got multiple accounts on the big bird service you might want to save some column space by merging all your accounts into the columns you’re interested in.

Step one is creating a list - click on the + button there to the left and then click on Lists.

Step one: Make a new list – click on the + button in the left Tweetdeck account pane and then click on Lists.

Use your default Twitter account and name your new List something like "All Accounts." Click Save.

Step two: Use your default Twitter account and name your new List something like “All Accounts.” Click Save.

Now, add all your Twitter accounts to the new list. Search in the field to the left, then hit the + button to add them.

Step three: Now, add all your Twitter accounts to the new list. Search in the field to the left, then hit the + button to add them.

Boom -- now you have a column with everything your accounts have posted. Great to keep track of your scheduled tweets and to make sure nothing's been hacked.

Step four: Boom — now you have a column with everything your accounts have posted, which is great to keep track of your scheduled tweets and to make sure nothing’s been hacked.

Do the same thing to add a column with just mentions for all your accounts - save yourself some columnar space.

Step five: Do the same thing to add a column with just mentions for all your accounts – save yourself some space.

Once finished, you'll have easily merged all your accounts into quite a more manageable layout.
