But come May,Twitter will discontinue TweetDeck for its mobile platforms i.e Android and iOS version of TweetDeck as well as the Air version of the app on MacOSX will be discontinued from May.Though the web version will continue to work hence forth.Not just that,they will discontinue support for Facebook integration.

Here’s the excerpt from their blog post,

TweetDeck is the most powerful Twitter tool for tracking real-time conversations. Its flexibility and customizable layout let you keep up with what’s happening on Twitter, across multiple topics and accounts, in real time. To continue to offer a great product that addresses your unique needs, we’re going to focus our development efforts on our modern, web-based versions of TweetDeck. To that end, we are discontinuing support for our older apps: TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone. They will be removed from their respective app stores in early May and will stop functioning shortly thereafter. We’ll also discontinue support for our Facebook integration.

So to focus on TweetDecks web edition,they will be discontinuing the mobile and Air version of the app for Mac.But the original Tweetdeck for Mac  and PC will still be available for the users.
