How to Disable Realtime Streaming in TweetDeck

It’s bad enough that I get notifications throughout the day while using TweetDeck, but now I get them all the time with TweetDeck’s latest realtime Twitter streaming option (which is set to On by default). Sure, I can disable notifications altogether, but I like some notifications to go through, just not all the time. If you feel the same way and are looking to disable this great new feature, follow the instructions below.
