Twitter to drop TweetDeck

TweetDeckTwo years ago, Twitter acquired TweetDeck. Since then, the service has been popularized as a way to organize tweets in manageable threads. However, reports say that the service will soon be shutdown on mobile devices and Facebook.

“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,” said in the TweetDeck blog. “To that end, we are discontinuing support for our older apps: TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android, and TweetDeck for iPhone.”

Based on trends, more and more people are using TweetDeck in their computers instead of mobile devices. The blog added, “This trend coincides with an increased investment in Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for Android — adding photo filters and other editing capabilities, revamping user profiles, and enhancing search.”

The micro-blogging website also mentioned that the TweetDeck mobile app relies on Twitter version 1.0 API, which is phasing out this month.
