According to reports from Tech Crunch, Twitter has acquired TweetDeck, at a cost of about $50 million. Congrats go out to the TweetDeck team for the know-how and ability to create such a lucrative piece of work, and we all look forward to your next project. But after all the back-patting and opening of the bubbly, how will this affect us as Android users?
TweetDeck is a really popular cross platform application, using Adobe Air on the desktop as well as having Android and iOS apps. It's touted as posting over 1 million tweets per day on Android alone, so a lot of users seem to like it just the way it is. The native Twitter client for Android, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired in many folks eyes. Will we see a mash-up of the two? Will one or the other get dropped? And what about TweetDeck's support for other networks like Google Buzz or Facebook? There's a lot of what-ifs to be considered, but in the end the question is simple -- will this make TweetDeck for Android better, or worse? Vote away!
