Might be time to start looking for a new Twitter client if you’re a Tweetdeck user: the Android, iPhone and desktop clients of the once-amazing app have just been killed so that Twitter can focus instead on web-based clients.
Twitter announced on the Tweetdeck blog today that the app will live on in a web-based form and in a Chrome app rather than in desktop and smartphone form.
Here’s the long and short of it:
To continue to offer a great product that addresses your unique needs, we’re going to focus our development efforts on our modern, web-based versions of TweetDeck. To that end, we are discontinuing support for our older apps: TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone. They will be removed from their respective app stores in early May and will stop functioning shortly thereafter. We’ll also discontinue support for our Facebook integration.
Vale, Tweetdeck apps. [Tweetdeck]
