Where in Tweetdeck is the option of not displaying people's profile pics and just displaying their name?

Or should I look at another Twitter client for this?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

I had a quick search and couldn't find an application on any platform that promotes that as a feature or as a TweetDeck option. So then I decided to take a crack at modifying a Windows based open source twitter client, and introduce the feature. As of 6th January this feature is in the public application.


You can get it here madprops.org/halfwit/ go down to the 'Where do I get it?' section.

It's only for Windows, so if you're on another platform, happy hunting.
