Tweetdeck is about the most popular third-party Twitter client, and it can arguably be better than even Twitter’s official website and apps. The Tweetdeck team has definitely done an outstanding job with the way their client is set up, and functions, while also being consistent from platform to platform. This client is available for desktop, Web, Chrome, Android, and iOS, covering every major platform out there. The ability to manage multiple accounts and sections has worked great for the majority of us, and this is something that Twitter has noticed as well.
News about Twitter acquiring Tweetdeck for $40-$50 million started rolling out since early May, and the deal has now been finalized. CNN mentions that the acquisition went for “more than” $40 million in cash and stocks, leaving a bit of uncertainty about the exact price. The important part is that Twitter now owns Tweetdeck, though, and it is unknown what changes will be coming to our favorite Twitter client. Will it continue to work separately? Will Twitter modify things to make it work officially?
