Twitter to End Support for TweetDeck for iPhone on May 7

tweetdecklogo.jpgAs noted in March, Twitter is planning to end support for TweetDeck for iPhone, TweetDeck for Android, and TweetDeck AIR. In an update to its original blog post today, Twitter announced that the services will be shut off 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.
Though it is ending support for the aforementioned services, Twitter will continue development on its TweetDeck web app and Google Chrome apps, with a secondary focus on its native Mac and PC apps.

Twitter will also be dropping Facebook integration from the remaining versions of TweetDeck.

TweetDeck for Mac, which is still supported, is a free download from the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

I wonder if someone else will fill the void?


I suspect Tweetbot (http://tapbots.com/software/tweetbot/mac/) already fills it. :)

What's sad is that Twitter started cutting back on what second-party developers could do with their API.. meaning the market for twitter clients vastly shrunk.

..could this be the start of the end for professional Twitter users?

$20 though. I love Tweetbot for iOS but can't justify that kind of money when a fast web browser functions close to the same.

Awesome of Twitter to buy TweetDeck, an app that was updated weekly, remove a bunch of it's features, then stop updating it and eventually kill it. :mad:

twitter is the best service to waste your time posting information that most likely no one will ever read
or care about....

When Twitter withdraws support on Tweetbot, that's the day when Twitter will die.

Let me know when Tweetbot supports Facebook and other social network and has scheduled tweets, then i'll consider spending $20 for an app. Until then... they can keep their overpriced OS X app.


This is Tweetbot not anysocialnetworkbot. Tweetbot does it's job very well. If you want the adium of the twitter world you'll have to look elsewhere.

People have more of their lives recorded on FB. Twitter deletes your tweets as they get too old anyway (at least they used to?). Not as big a loss.


That's becoming less and less true these days. A lot of people I know simply don't log on anymore, and these are ~18 year olds at uni, the original target market. Advertisers aren't too fond of Facebook these days either.

Twitter doesn't delete your tweets as they get old, I have no idea where you got that from.

Um actually yes it does. Well for me anyways. Simple to use, elegant, similar UI in the OS X and iOS clients etc etc. That's why I coughed up the rather expensive $20 I think it was for the OS X version. It's a good little twitter client.
