TweetDeck Limited, a Twitter subsidiary (bought in 2011), has been dissolved after failing to file accounts. The company was given multiple warnings since last September to complete their filings from 2011.
TweetDeck users will be able to continue using the service uninterrupted.
Twitter has no issue with the dissolving of the TweetDeck Limited. A Twitter spokesman had this to say: “TweetDeck the product continues to thrive as part of Twitter, but the old company has been dormant for some time, with no outstanding liabilities; hence our agreement with the move to dissolve it.”
TweetDeck Limited’s assets are already integrated into Twitter’s operations. The app development was one of the few things that remained in London after the acquisition.
Since acquiring the London-based app, Twitter slowly restricted access to third-party apps, allowing TweetDeck to dominate among power users. After doubling down on TweetDeck, the company recently announced that parts of TweetDeck will be scrapped, as well as having many popular features removed from the web app.
Many power users are left wondering what to do once TweetDeck goes black but there are plenty of alternatives available, including Hootsuite and SocialBro.
