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. :)

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:

$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.

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?

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.

A decade ago, developer Riley Testut released the GBA4iOS emulator for iOS, and since it was against the rules at the time, Apple put a stop to downloads. Emulators have been a violation of the App Store rules for years, but that changed on April 5 when Apple suddenly reversed course and said that it was allowing retro game emulators on the App Store.
