It should be noted that users can continue to use TweetDeck on all Macs via any browser until the company re-releases the new standalone app later this year.
TweetDeck, Twitter‘s social media dashboard application for management, will no longer be available as a standalone Mac app beginning July 1.
Twitter has begun placing a blue banner at the top of the TweetDeck for Mac app, warning users that it will only be available for one month more, according to 9To5Google.
“We are saying goodbye to TweetDeck for the Mac app in order to focus on making TweetDeck even better and testing our new Preview,” the TweetDeck team writes in a tweet.
“The last day it will be available is July 1,” it added.
According to the report, TweetDeck for Mac was updated last year to bring it in line with the web version.
The company admitted at the time that the app had not received “a lot of love,” but that it was an example of “a Twitter-owned and operated service that we will continue to invest in.”
Another odd aspect of the TweetDeck Mac app’s abrupt cancellation is that, as a website wrapper implementation, it should not require any maintenance effort from Twitter.
The microblogging site announced a new and improved version of TweetDeck last year.
It was testing the new features with a small group of users in the United States, Canada, and Australia at the time.
Users can continue to use TweetDeck on all Macs through any browser until the company re-releases the new standalone app for Apple PCs in the coming months.
