    TweetDeck can be an useful way of keeping track of multiple Twitter accounts and everything that’s going on in the social network, but it lacks some of the functionality of the regular Twitter stream.

    One of those missing feature was animated GIFs, but no longer. Now when a GIF shows up in your TweetDeck feed, you’ll see it embedded as an MP4 video, just as you do when using Twitter’s Web client.

    It’s a small change, but should save you some time by not forcing you to open a new browser window just to view a GIF.
