TweetDeck for Android and iPhone Killed Off

TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone will be removed as announced by Twitter on its TweetDeck blog. So the date on the calendar has been finally pinpointed. 7th May it is and will be for the relinquishing of apps from the market. Meanwhile, the TweetDeck for Mac and PC are still in order. They have not been vanquished. TweetDeck was acquired in 2011 for a cool $40 million by Twitter. It was the brainchild of Iain Dodsworth who came up with the final version in 2008. 

Facebook integration too will grind to a halt on the exact date set for the Android and iPhone TweetDeck final countdown. TweetDeck is a versatile and potent weapon in the online arsenal. It allows anyone to keep abreast of what goes on at Twitter. The curtailing of support for the old apps will end in their ceasing to function altogether in the market.

Since the past year and a half, efforts have been under way for the creation of new apps such as Chrome. Many search filters as well as tweet streams are in the pipeline. The company was cognizant of the fact that many people were inconvenienced by this sudden plan to shut down the previous apps. It has relayed its sincerest apologies to these users on behalf of the administration.

Twitter is the platform for communication that runs throughout the world. All the tweets start collecting on the site like bird calls via the tweet button. But this shocking reversal has sent the wrong signals to many people. The transition period has its chaotic side effects. Nevertheless, things will pick up speed soon with new apps and new stuff. Meanwhile, the older naturally gets stashed away.
