    Tweetdeck AIR is still the best desktop client around, even though it hasn't seen an update in years...so of course that's the one Twitter decides to arbitrarily kill.

    I hate this specifically because Tweetdeck was the only client I knew of that still told you what client the person tweeting was using (which is actually something I occasionally needed to know). It's the reason I'm still using the old AIR version. And since they got rid of that feature on their website, I now need to see if any other desktop Twitter client does that.

    Between this and cutting off Falcon Pro after 100K users, I'm convinced that they don't really know what they're doing in regards to their API and their clients.

    AIR version was all I used also. I loved just how it works, compared to the not so interesting new versions. People literally were looking for the AIR version, and wanted to just dump that new client. It's no surprise with an old API to axe it, older tech doesn't always keep up. I'm really sad though this is being done, soon as I read the title I had to let others know.

    Many people I chat with, love the TweetDeck AIR app honestly. It's really kinda upsetting to see it go.
