No, it's the ability to manage and interact with both Twitter AND Facebook feeds.

Twitter will also be dropping Facebook integration from the remaining versions of TweetDeck.

TweetDeck*for Mac, which is still supported, is a free download from the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]

This is further proof that you should never build a business that is based on someone else's API.

To be fair most "social media" is becoming more and more like yelling at the TV everyday.

Let me know when Tweetbot supports Facebook and other social network and has scheduled tweets, then i'll consider spending $20 for an app. Until then... they can keep their overpriced OS X app.

Awesome of Twitter to buy TweetDeck, an app that was updated weekly, remove a bunch of it's features, then stop updating it and eventually kill it.

I've always used TweetCaster for posting to Twitter and FB simultaneously and the native apps for content consumption. This will not affect me.

This is Tweetbot not anysocialnetworkbot. Tweetbot does it's job very well. If you want the adium of the twitter world you'll have to look elsewhere.

The same can be said of Facebook right now, but neither is about to suddenly disappear.

People have more of their lives recorded on FB. Twitter deletes your tweets as they get too old anyway (at least they used to?). Not as big a loss.

That's becoming less and less true these days. A lot of people I know simply don't log on anymore, and these are ~18 year olds at uni, the original target market. Advertisers aren't too fond of Facebook these days either.

Twitter doesn't delete your tweets as they get old, I have no idea where you got that from.

I'm very well aware of what the app is. I'm saying that it just doesn't compare to the functionality of TweetBot AIR. The fact that Tweetbot still doesn't have a connect button & can't schedule tweets just solidifies my point.

OK, fine. We can refer to Tweetdeck as Anysocialnetworkdeck if you prefer.

How many non-official Twitter clients can you name that have a connect button? Twitter's own program for OS X doesn't have one.

About tweet scheduling-annoying, perhaps, but not really such a loss in my opinion.
