Sadly today Twitter has ended all support for TweetDeck on iPhone, Android and TweetDeck AIR. The company announced this today on a blog post stating that Twitter is focussing development on its TweetDeck web app and Google Chrome apps, and secondarily on its native Mac and PC apps.

In addition to this the company has also announced that it is dropping Facebook integration from all versions of TweetDeck. Here is what they had to say

TweetDeck is the most powerful Twitter tool for tracking real-time conversations. Its flexibility and customizable layout let you keep up with what’s happening on Twitter, across multiple topics and accounts, in real time. 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. To that end, we are discontinuing support for our older apps: TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone. They will be removed from their respective app stores in early May and will stop functioning shortly thereafter. We’ll also discontinue support for our Facebook integration.

The company is stating that the web and Chrome apps will produce “the best TweetDeck experience yet”, with those apps being the first to see the upgrades. The native Mac and PC apps will have to wait for now but apparently they will receive updates shortly after.
