Twitter kills TweetDeck on May 7

TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone will be removed from their respective app stores and will stop functioning on May 7. Our Facebook integration will also stop on May 7.

To continue to offer a great product that addresses your unique needs, we’re going to focus our development efforts on our modern, web-based versions of TweetDeck. To that end, we are discontinuing support for our older apps: TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone. They will be removed from their respective app stores in early May and will stop functioning shortly thereafter [see update]. We’ll also discontinue support for our Facebook integration.

    Why is it so many other companies can do both a native app AND a web app?

      Because they care about offering users choices.

    Because Twitter wants you to use the web.

      Exactly. A service that epitomises mobility like no other and these dipsticks want you on their website.

    I bout Tweetbot the other day. Best Twitter decision yet.

    These moves kind of scare me. I rarely use the website and I use a third-party client on four different platforms; Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Windows. This makes me fearful they’ll eventually kill off ALL third party clients, which would totally suck.

    LONG LIVE OLLIE!
