The folks behind the popular social networking app TweetDeck had a “Hack Day” recently, where designers took a break from their regular tasks and whipped up some new ways to use TweetDeck’s apps. That includes an option for emailing tweets to yourself so you can read them on your phone when you’re offline, and the Tweet-As-You-Go design you can see above, which lets Android users send messages and walk at the same time, by displaying your real world environment as seen through your phone’s camera.

Other ideas include a native desktop application for Windows, Mac and Linux which users the same interface as the TweetDeck app for Google Chrome (called ChromeDeck), and a Gmail notifier.

You can find more hacks at the TweetDeck blog and vote for your favorites. The company may implement them into future TweetDeck software.

TweetDeck lets users view messages from multiple Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Google Buzz accounts all in one place.
