Tweetdeck gets shut down by the UK government

Tweetdeck is probably the most popular Twitter client out there. The software itself was bought by Twitter back in 2011 and ever since then Tweetdeck has operated as a limited liability company in the UK and a subsidiary of Twitter UK Ltd. That is up until this morning when the powers that be had Tweetdeck dissolved. 

We previously reported that the company had some problems in filing their financial accounts with the UK government and that they had been warned. Well the company hasn't remedied the situation and as such it was struck off the register by Companies House this morning.

However this didn't come as a surprise to anyone. In fact this was Twitter's way of closing down one of its subsidiaries. A Twitter spokesperson said: "TweetDeck the product continues to thrive as part of Twitter, but the old TweetDeck company has been dormant for some time, with no outstanding liabilities; hence our agreement with the move to dissolve it".
