Twitter Confirms TweetDeck AIR and mobile app on May 7th


Twitter has been saying for weeks that TweetDeck’s AIR and mobile apps would be shutting down sometime in May, but we didn’t have an exact date when loyal supporters would finally have to move on. Twitter have now released the date which has been confirmed as: May 7th. So in just over two weeks, Twitter will pull the plug on the apps from their respective stores and stop existing installs from working as the service’s version 1.0 API rides into the sunset. While the native and web-based desktop apps will reduce some of the sting, it’s time to you pay your last respects, of TweetDeck’s early apps.

An update on TweetDeck
Update – April 19, 12:55pm PDT

TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone will be removed from their respective app stores and will stop functioning on May 7. Our Facebook integration will also stop on May 7.

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 [see update]. We’ll also discontinue support for our Facebook integration.
