TweetDeck is a popular desktop client for Twitter. It offers users the ability to organise tweets in multiple columns, such as by user and topic. Another feature it offers is smooth scrolling. This means that the TweetDeck columns will update it real time, scrolling the tweets down the screen. Enabled by default, this is an effective way to stay up-to-date, but if you follow too many people it can move to fast or use too much memory power. Turning off smooth scrolling will fix this.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Select "Preferences" from the "TweetDeck" menu.

  2. 2

    Click "Twitter" in the left navigation column.

  3. 3

    Uncheck the box marked "Enable realtime Twitter streaming."

  4. 4

    Click "Save." TweetDeck will no longer scroll through the tweets live. To refresh your tweets manually, click the circular arrows icon in the upper right corner.

Tips and warnings

  • To re-enable smooth scrolling, just go back and check the "Enable" box.
