If you’re a Windows user, here is a bit of a blow: on April 15th, Twitter will be pulling the plug on the Windows version of Tweetdeck. Of course, you will still be able to access and use TweetDeck, but only via the Web interface.

The company did not actually offer any reasons for the decision, other than explaining that the Web interface will offer a better overall experience to the users:

By deprecating the Windows app and activating the TweetDeck cookie, we’ll be able to enhance the overall TweetDeck experience. Our main focus for TweetDeck is continuing to build a simpler, more intuitive experience for all Twitter users.

The truth is that TweetDeck for Windows had not really been taken care of for a while. Much like the Twitter app for mac… which was updated recently.

There Is Some Good News…

In the same announcement, Amy Zima, TweetDeck’s Product manager, explained how TweetDeck will now benefit from a more seamless login experience, allowing users who are already connected to Twitter on their browsers, to switch to TweetDeck without having to log in again:

Starting today, when you’re logged in to any Twitter website, like twitter.com or analytics.twitter.com, you’ll no longer need to log in to TweetDeck separately. Now, when you move from TweetDeck to Twitter websites, or from these websites to TweetDeck, you’ll be automatically logged in — making it even easier to move between the tools you use daily.


This is great news for heavy users who usually spend a lot of time jumping from one site to the other. Is it enough to make Windows users feel better?

This new login feature will be rolling out to all TweetDeck users over the next few weeks.
