Twitter shutting off TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone on May 7

Published by:

Direct from Twitter:

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.

Why is Twitter shutting down Tweetdeck service?

Over the past 18 months, we’ve been focused on building a fast and feature-richweb application for modern browsers, and a Chrome app, which offers some unique features like notifications. We’ve recently introduced many enhancements to these apps –– a new look and feel, tools like search term autocomplete and search filtersto help you find what you’re looking for more quickly, and automatically-updating Tweet streams so you immediately see the most recent Tweets. Our weekly web releases have been possible because we’ve nearly doubled the size of the TweetDeck team over the past six months (and we’re still hiring).

What Tweetdeck services will be available?

According to MacRumors, Twitter will continue development on its TweetDeck web app and Google Chrome apps, with a secondary focus on its native Mac and PC apps.

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.
