Twitter sets kill date for TweetDeck on Android, iOS, AIR and Facebook

Twitter to shut down all mobile versions of its TweetDeck software on May 7th.

Last month Twitter announced that it would be shutting down TweetDeck Air, TweetDeck for Android, and TweetDeck for iOS but had not finalized the date on which the apps would go offline. Today we found out that date.

May 7th will be the last time that the TweetDeck mobile apps will see the light of day. They will be removed from their app stores and their APIs turned off. Facebook integration to TweetDeck will also cease to function.

 

Twitter says that both the Windows and Mac versions will stick around for the time being and will slowly be updated following browser updates. No word on if we will see a TweetDeck like replacement for mobile devices anytime soon though and our advice would be not to hold your breath.
