Twitter Buys TweetDeck


So, this is official, Twitter has acquired TweetDeck. The rumor of Twitter buying TweetDeck was flying in the air for a long time. Now, Twitter has finally announced that it has acquired TweetDeck, one of the most widely used third-party Twitter applications. The price on which Twitter bought TweetDeck has not been disclosed yet. According to some reports, the price is around $40 million which, in my opinion is very huge for TweetDeck.

“This acquisition is an important step forward for us, TweetDeck provides brands, publishers, marketers and others with a powerful platform to track all the real-time conversations they care about.” said by Dick Costolo(Twitter CEO). The rumors of course were going on from a long time but this news was made official when Dick Costolo himself posted about this news on Twitter Blog.

"Change may well be inevitable, but we remain the same team, staying in London, with the same focus and products, and now with the support and resources to allow us to grow and take on even bigger challenges" said by Ian Dodsworth in TweetDeck Blog.

I don't think I have any thing more to say. Just wishing best of luck to Twitter and hoping to see some good changes in TweetDeck. What do you think will happen? Do comment.
