Twitter kills off TweetDeck’s trio of non-web apps
Yesterday (March 04, 2013), Twitter announced that it will discontinue support for the TweetDeck non-web applications for iPhone, Android and Air by removing them from their app stores by early May. This is in a bid to prevent users accessing Twitter through applications developed by third parties and encourage the use of TweetDeck for web and TweetDeck the Chrome app instead.
Twitter will now focus it’s efforts on its “modern, web-based versions of TweetDeck” to enable it full control of the increasing activity on the microblogging site.
