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.
