Twitter Might Buy TweetDeck

Written on April 19, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Twitter is in talks to buy TweetDeck for $30 million, the Wall Street Journal reports.

TweetDeck is among the most popular third-party clients of Twitter, with versions for desktop, iPad, iPhone and Android. The app displays Tweets, @mentions and direct messages, together with a user’s Facebook updates all in real-time and in one screen. TweetDeck can also support feeds from other social media sites like MySpace, LinkedIn and Foursquare.

Although TweetDeck never revealed how many users it has, the U.K. based company seems to be one of the best tools of obsessive “power users” of social media. TweetDeck was previously reported to be in talks to sell for $30 million to UberMedia, but Twitter apparently saw the opportunity to steal the deal.

Why would Twitter want to get TweetDeck from UberMedia anyway?

After ages of waiting, just before your patience drains out, TweetDeck 1.0 for Android is finally unleashed. The snitch is, the Apple version is modeled after the Android version when usually it plays vice versa.

At last! After ages of being in beta, TweetDeck is now here for Android. TweetDeck 1.0 is now ready for download on the Android Market. TweetDeck for Android is not only for Twitter but for Facebook, Foursquare and Google Buzz as well.

According to the announcement, TweetDeck notes 36,000 plus users joined the TweetDeck beta. TweetDeck also noted that the new versions for Apple will be modeled after the Android version.

If you already acquired the beta version of TweetDeck have it uninstalled before getting the TweetDeck 1.0. Don’t forget to follow @deckondroid to get the latest updates.

TweetDeck App for Android is Here

Written on August 12, 2010 by Japhet Writ

For users of Android operated handsets, handling your social media accounts is no longer a fuzz. The mobile OS welcomes TweetDeck -- your one stop app for Facebook, Twitter, Buzz, and Foursquare!

The popular social media management tool TweetDeck will be available as an Android app starting this Thursday. The company will also open the beta program in the morning. So far, the application is still in a beta form, meaning it still lacks finishing touches expected from a fully functional program. However, the app has an exciting potential.

Facebook, Twitter, Buzz and Foursquare accounts are integrated into a single application. Color-coded updates are presented in a single column. Included also in the app is a “Me” portion where user can review all their Twitter replies, plus comments and likes for their Facebook posts. The updates are pulled in a way that is easier on battery life, rather than having a real-time data stream that runs continuously. To wrap it up, the UI is clean and effective for handset display. Furthermore, the new Android app is a clear signal of where Apple-based applications are heading.

TweetDeck is looking forward to improving their map performance, handling of multiple Twitter accounts, video upload capacity and integration with the Android hardware. Don’t forget to share us your insights about the app once you have beta program.

The world's best-loved microblogging site is on a roll. Set to play for the ad market soon, Twitter is preparing itself and its developers for the launch of Promoted Tweets and Promoted Trends within third-party apps.

Twitter’s application programming interface (API) has been updated in order to provide developers access to two new domains that are related to Promoted Tweets and Promoted Trends. But unless these Promoted Contents appear on third-party apps such as TweetDeck and Seesmic, this indicates that data points are not yet ready for primetime. Twitter Developer Advocate […]
