It’s been known that TweetDeck would eventually come to an end, ever since Twitter announced that its API v1 was going to be retired, and that it would not be updating TweetDeck to the new version. Well, according to a blogpost over on Twitter’s official blog, the API v1 has officially been retired as of today, and any apps using it will no longer work.
Today, we are retiring API v1 and fully transitioning to API v1.1. Given the array of blackout tests, blogposts, Tweets and other updates, this should (hopefully) not be a surprise. Before I get into the slew of resources available for you, let me first say thank you for your cooperation over the last several months.
Many apps, including the likes of TweetBot, Twitterrific 5, and other popular Twitter clients, have already seen updates to include the API v1.1, so you shouldn’t have any problem using them. However, if the app you are using no longer works, than you probably should contact the developer to say if they will be updating/supporting the new API version. If you are a developer who has yet to update your application, there is still some time, head on over to Twitter blog post to find out how.
What do you think? Will you miss TweetDeck? What app will you move to now? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
