TweetDeck’s Android App is Official

Twitter aficionados with Google Android phones are about to get a new friend, TweetDeck just came out of beta and is available on the Android Market:

For those of you who haven’t had the chance to test the beta, Android TweetDeck is a completely reworked UI for managing your social media empire. With the app you can view and post to Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare and Buzz. We’ve tried to innovate as much as possible to deliver a smooth, clean experience while offering more power than any other social mobile client.

“Updates from all services are viewable in blended Home and Me columns so you can easily keep up-to-date without a lot of jumping around. We’ve also strived to take what has made TweetDeck a great Twitter client and provide that level of support to the other services.

The client is, as ever, sleek and functional and seamlessly blends social networking accounts—displaying each with different colors of visual separation. It includes location services that make use of GPS including a map of nearby contacts, their location-based status updates, and even venue checks (opening up room for location-based social marketing.)

Be sure to check it out in the Android Market, and watch the video below.

About Kyt Dotson

Technology and civilization walk hand in hand and civilization is nothing without the skin of society, brushing up against itself, speaking strange nothings across dimly lit avenues and computer screens. If we're going to understand ourselves in this digital era, it will be through watching the adoption of technology by people to express themselves as people. I am an anthropologist and an author of science fiction and fantasy--and with my technology, I hope to open up new and exciting worlds that will not just enlighten the humanity of my friends and fans but also educate and enhance the expression of their own personhood.
