Fans of the popular Twitter client TweetDeck will happy to hear that they’ve posted a new version of their Mac app today. The update, which brings the app to version 3.5.5 includes a handful of new features and bug fixes.

With version 3.5.5, users are now able to take advantage of Twitter’s new Direct Message photo service, which allows you to send and receive photos via DM. The update also adds some custom Timeline options, and more…

Here’s the change log:

TweetDeck makes it easier for publishers, marketers and power users to track the real-time conversations they care about. It brings more flexibility and insight to power users through a customizable layout that lets you keep up with the people and topics that matter most to you. And, you can join the conversation by tweeting, sharing photos and links to news stories, and more.

What’s New in Version 3.5.5

– Send photos in direct messages.
– Add Tweets to custom timelines via URL.
– Fixes bug where login session was not persisted across restarts.

I’m a devoted Tweetbot user, on both iOS and Mac, but I must say that I’ve always found TweetDeck impressive. It’s well-designed and offers a treasure trove of features, and I think it makes a great alternative to the official app.

If you’re interested, you can find TweetDeck in the Mac App Store for free.
