TweetDeck, the popular dashboard Twitter client, will no longer offer a standalone Windows desktop client after April 15.

In a post on Twitter's blog (which acquired TweetDeck some time ago), it stated:

To better focus on enhancing your TweetDeck experience, we'll no longer support a standalone Windows app. If you use Windows, you'll still be able to visit TweetDeck on the web — nothing is changing about TweetDeck itself, just where you access it from. This change will take effect on April 15th.

Of course, Windows desktop users who still want a standalone Twitter client similar to TweetDeck still have the option of checking out the recently released Tweeten app, which updated to version 1.5 a few days ago.

In related news Twitter also announced that TweetDeck users won't have to login separately if they are also logged into the Twitter website:

Now, when you move from TweetDeck to Twitter websites, or from these websites to TweetDeck, you'll be automatically logged in — making it even easier to move between the tools you use daily.
