TweetDeck Update

TweetDeck Update

TweetDeck might be a foreign word to you, so let me begin by sharing about it.  TweetDeck is a Twitter account manager with Facebook integration available.  It gives flexibility to Twitter by allowing management of multiple accounts and gives up to date insights.  A little history behind TweetDeck.  When I first learned about this tool you had to download it, but now it has an web version, Android App, iPhone App, Mac App, PC App, Chrome App and a desktop version.  It has expanded beyond what it once was, especially after Twitter bought them.  TweetDeck is owned and managed by Twitter now.  You may be asking, "What is the update?"

Back on March 4, 2013 TweetDeck put out a blog post titled "An update on TweetDeck" explaining some updates coming soon.  They announced the Android and iPhone Apps will no longer work beginning in early May, instead they will primarily focused on their web experience.  The driving force behind this change is clear in this statement, "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."

If users are going primarily web then that is where they should be putting most of their effort.  I think it is a smart choice.  I have not used them for a while, primarily because they solely focus on Twitter, which is only one social network.  It's not that I don't like TweetDeck, it's that I need more, so I use HootSuite.
