Tweetdeck now officially owned by Twitter

Most people didn’t like the idea of twitter owning Tweetdeck, but that is too bad. Twitter has finalized the purchase at a whopping 40 million dollars. Now we will have to wait and see what kinds of things change for the app.

    I think twitter, got tweetdeck on the cheap, if you consider that tweetdeck accounts for about 20% of twitter traffic and this 20% represent the most active users, didnt twitter come out, wile a go and disuse there revenue model in context of 100% of the users..so they got tweetdeck on cheap sweet deal.. If tweetdeck had 20% of there 1 billion euro revenue model…

      That’s too bad. First they make Tweetdeck start working like crap, causing tons of people to bail on it – And now they update it to be more like Twitter, without some of the features that made Tweetdeck awesome… Damn you, Twitter!
