Twitter to shut down Windows TweetDeck app in April

According to a recent post on popular microblogging service Twitter's official blog, the company has decided to shut down the TweetDeck standalone app for Windows. The app allows users to create a dashboard for simultaneous management of multiple accounts.

About the decision to discontinue the Windows TweetDeck app, Twitter said that it will end support for the app on April 15, 2016. However, Twitter has also added that though the TweetDeck app for Windows will be shut down next month, the Web version of TweetDeck will continue to unfold the same experience for the app's users.

In reference to Twitter's decision to abandon the TweetDeck app for Windows, product manager Amy Zima said in the company blog post that the move is essentially aimed at "enhancing your TweetDeck experience."

Zima also said in the blog post: "Nothing is changing about TweetDeck itself, just where you access it from."

Meanwhile, along with announcing the imminent shutdown of the TweetDeck app for Windows, Twitter has also reminded Windows users that they can easily make the TweetDeck Web app more accessible from their Windows PC by ensuring that the app is pinned to their taskbar.
