Today I was taking part in an online webinar, which in the SEO world means that a hashtag trail will be set up to follow the discussion, as well as to ask questions usually. Every Thursday there’s #seochat, for SEOmoz webinars it is usually #mozinar.
Today I decided to use my iPad, and Tweetdeck as I have taken to using it more and more over Hootsuite, to follow the discussion. I set out to create a column (which is a great feature) that would only show me tweets with “#mozinar” included. I clicked the Add Column button to add a column and tried to type in “#mozinar”. Because of the sometimes-clumsy iPad typing, I actually typed in “#mozinae”.
Oops. *head slap*
The next problem I had was deleting the column! I could not figure it out for the life of me, so I had this stupid “#mozinae” column next to my “#mozinar” column the whole time, just laughing at me for being an idiot.
I want to help you out by giving you the simple instructions of how to delete a column in the Tweetdeck iPad app.
Steps to deleting Columns in Tweetdeck iPad App
- Step 1: Hold your finger on the header of the column. It should be named according to your custom label. In my case, it was labeled “#mozinae”.
- The columns will become smaller and show separately, much like pages opened in the iPad Safari app, if you are familiar with that. A little red box with an “X” will appear in the top right corner of the column.
- Click that little red “X”. The column will disappear.
- All you have to do to return to your regular viewing schedule is double-tap with your finger anywhere on the screen. Your columns will realign and the world will make sense once again.
