Sunday 4th July 2010 was TweetDeck’s 2nd Birthday which means this is a great opportunity to highlight what we’ve achieved over the over the past 12 months and what’s in store for the next.
Over the past 12 months we have:
So what’s next?
That’s a fairly big question.
We believe the future holds even more fast-moving streams of socially relevant information. Our mission is to help our users manage and harness these information flows. To that end, we are moving towards being truly multi-stream, re-building our clients from the ground-up with multi-stream functionality ingrained rather than simply bolting on new disconnected networks.
Our Android TweetDeck is a great example of our belief that “true multi-stream”, the intersection of social networks, can be infinitely greater than the sum of its parts - or to put it another way TweetDeck should be more about what your friends are saying rather than the networks they are using to say it.
The other major trend is the maturation of the real-time ecosystem into a business. Consistent monetization is necessary for companies in the space, from big to small, and we are committed to working with our integrated networks to make sure that the user experience remains paramount as revenue streams are introduced.
One thing is certain - our third year is going to be incredibly interesting.
