Tweetdeck is dropping Facebook like a hot potato. A beautiful relationship has come to an end.
But that’s not all that Tweetdeck recently announced on its blog. They’re also dropping some of their own apps, including Tweetdeck AIR, Tweetdeck for Android, and Tweetdeck for iPhone. That means they are going fully web-based.
Of course, Tweetdeck’s web-based platform has been increasing in popularity. Here’s what tweetdeck says about it:
In many ways, doubling down on the TweetDeck web experience and discontinuing our app support is a reflection of where our TweetDeck power-users are going. Over the past few years, we’ve seen a steady trend towards people using TweetDeck on their computers and Twitter on their mobile devices. 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. That said, we know this applies to most of our users –– not all of them. And for those of you who are inconvenienced by this shift, our sincere apologies.
The good news is that Tweetdeck is developing a Chrome app. This will be good news for Chrome users. Included in the features will be notifications. I say, go Tweetdeck!
