Twitter is ending support for TweetDeck on Windows PCs and forcing users to switch to the web version instead. This doesn’t exactly mean that PC users will no longer be able to access the more organised version of Twitter, but rather that they will have to do it through a web browser instead.
The change is supposedly so Twitter is able to “better focus on enhancing your TweetDeck experience.” Which is apparently due to the number of new features appearing on Twitter that have not made their way to the standalone desktop application.
One other change is that users will automatically be logged into TweetDeck on a browser if they are also already logged in to either twitter.com or analytics.twitter.com. This almost makes it easier for users to get started on TweetDeck for the web, but it is unlikely to mean much.
Support for TweetDeck on PC will end on 15 April 2016, and social media power users should get used to the idea of opening another tab in their browsers. Not everyone is happy with the change that will likely make the lives of social media managers everywhere a little bit harder.
