Twitter is all set to shut down its TweetDeck app, which is used as a Twitter tool, on May 7. Along with that TweetDeck for Facebook will also be going offline and will no longer be functional. So the TweetDeck apps will not be available on either Google Play store or iTunes app store post May 7.
Twitter is retiring its Twitter API 1.0 which is the base for applications like TweetDeck and therefore the applications will no longer be available for use.
TweetDeck is a powerful Twitter tool for tracking real time conversations. Its flexibility and customisable layout lets users keep up with what’s happening on Twitter, across multiple topics and accounts, in real time. However, the web version of TweetDeck will still be available for the users to use and will offer the same great functionality as ever.
The most likely idea behind killing Twitter API seems to be the push for using the official Twitter application that the company has been improving a lot in the past couple of months.
