With @tweetdeck going bye bye on iPhone, Android and desktop, it’s time to find an alternative

Published by:

A developing story from The Verge, reports that Twitter is shutting down Tweetdeck for iPhone, Android and desktop.

There’s no question that Tweetdeck is one of the most (if not the most) robust of all Twitter third party applications. I’m a client and a fan and will be among the many who shed a tear when it’s no longer available. That said, it means it’s time to find a replacement.

I will most likely migrate back to Hootsuite. Remember them?

Hootsuite (www.hootsuite.com)
HootSuite is a browser and app (iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry) social media dashboard.  There are free and paid versions of Hootsuite. For the basic account users can add a maximum of 20 tabs per dashboard, 10 streams per tab and five social networks, including Facebook profiles, pages and groups, Twitter, Google+ and more. They also work with a ton of third party apps.

What about you? What will you use? Let us know in the comments.

FAVE STATS: How the top tweeters tweet (most use Twitter.com)

Published by:

Want to tweet like your favorite tweeters? If you’re using the homebase of Twitter.com, then you’re probably spot on. Check out these 54 top tweeters (majority in the top 60 most followed on Twitter, plus a few of my favorites) and their Twitter client(s) of choice. Before you look at the list, here are a few findings from the hours I spent pouring over their Twitter feeds:

  • 52% of top tweeters used more than one Twitter client to send out tweets [TWEET THIS]
  • 18% of top tweeters used ONLY Twitter.com to tweet [TWEET THIS]
  • 39% of top tweeters use Twitter.com in addition to at least one additional Twitter client to tweet [TWEET THIS]
  • FUN FACT: Snoop Dogg tweets from more Twitter clients than any of his top tweeter celebrity counterparts (mentioned in this post). [TWEET THIS]
  • FUN FACT: Out of 54 top tweeters, a combination of 37 different Twitter clients were used. [TWEET THIS]
  • The top 5 Twitter clients for these top tweeters are: 1. Twitter.com; 2. Twitter for iPhone; 3. Their own site; 4. Ubersocial for Blackberry; 5. A 4-way tie between Hootsuite, Twitter for Mac, Twitter fro Blackberry and Tweetdeck. [TWEET THIS]
  • Nicki Minaj uses an iPhone and a Blackberry to tweet. [TWEET THIS]
  • The folks who run the @facebook account use Twitter.com and direct from Facebook to tweet. [TWEET THIS]
