"Tweak me!"

TweakDeck is a Twitter client TweetDeck based

It must be said though that this app isn't affiliated with either Tweetdeck nor Twitter. It's an independent Twitter client that is based on Tweetdeck interface and appearance.

However, its developer, Modaco, wanted to enhance the original Tweetdeck app in some regards. First we've noticed is the new iconography: the icon is blue as well as the unread bar and the highlights, just like the Chrome version looks like. It includes deck.ly (same as original Tweetdeck). What has been fixed is the bug with t.co URLs and the Galaxy Nexus support. Modaco says that it was also optimised and compressed for a better performance. We've noticed that the app runs smoothly, it takes shorter to load the Time Line. The only catch is that it seems that it drains a bit more battery than the original (1%-3% more, not really important.)

We recommend you to give it a go if you are already using Tweetdeck. Test it a couple of days and check by yourself if the improvements are worth enough for you.

Developer's original description available here
IMPORTANT: Twitter has announced that version 1.0 of the Twitter API is being retired on 7th May, 2013. It is expected that TweakDeck will cease to work after this date. Unfortunately this is completely beyond our control and it's not technically possible / feasible to update TweakDeck to the new API. You can read more about the change at https://dev.twitter.com/blog/api-v1-retirement-final-dates - i'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for using TweakDeck. Please follow @tweakdeck and @paulobrien for further information.

    Has it recently been pulled out of Android Market? Download link won't work from phone, and search on the Market website turns up nothing. :(

    This is exactly what I was looking for, after having deleted Tweetdeck because my LG Ally internal storage couldn't handle Tweetdeck. Tweakdeck can go to the SD card! Perfect. everything else seems the same to me.
