The team responsible for the third-party Twitter client Tweetdeck is, at this moment, providing a perfect example of how not to provide updates to software.
Tweetdeck commits three egregious sins:
- It includes an update checker and notifier that cannot be turned off or set to manual.
- You can close that update notifier or click the ‘Download Later’ button, but it will nevertheless pop up again later.
- After successfully harassing the user into downloading and installing the update, it breaks things.
