TweetDeck to become even less useful on May 7

Twitter has been hard at work over the last few months making TweeDeck less and less useful, so it comes with little surprise this morning that I received a notice that the connection between TweetDeck and Facebook will be severed on May 7. This is not really bad news. There are other tools that offer combined views of Twitter and Facebook content, and TweetDeck is only a useful tool now if viewed through the Google Chrome browser these days anyway. But if you rely on TweetDeck to keep track of both services, it’s now time to consider the alternatives.
