I am quite sure that many of us out there have heard of TweetDeck, let alone use it. TweetDeck has long been deemed to be the feature-rich Twitter client which was picked up by Twitter back in 2011, but it seems that it will not be available in its present form with such freedom soon. Apparently, TweetDeck seems to be on the path to function as a web-based service only, where its native Mac and Windows apps will co-exist except that they are to play second fiddle to the web and Chrome apps.
Word has it that TweetDeck’s AIR-based version for desktop platforms will no longer be available to the masses, not to mention the removal of Android and iPhone apps from their respective mobile stores this coming May. The TweetDeck team was also caught to say that it will “discontinue support for our Facebook integration.” TweetDeck will, as mentioned, continue to deliver support for its native apps for Mac and Windows platforms, although the main focus of the team would be on the web and Chrome apps.
