Tweet Beyond 140 Characters With Deck.ly From Tweetdeck

Tweetdeck is one of the most popular Twitter clients around the world with over 20 million desktop downloads. It’s also in direct competition with Twitter’s very own web client, which gets first dibs on nearly every new Twitter feature. Recent changes to the Twitter web client have been bad business for most Twitter apps, but Tweetdeck isn’t worried one bit. In fact, Tweetdeck is throwing a jab at Twitter with Deck.ly.

Deck.ly will be a Tweetdeck service that allows you to keep talking beyond 140 characters. Tweetdeck founder and chief executive, Iain Dodsworth, stated that users have been “very vocal” about getting rid the 140 character limit on tweets. When viewing Deck.ly tweets in Tweetdeck apps, the entire tweet, no matter how long, will appear in-line . If you’re not a Tweetdeck user, tweets sent using Deck.ly will be truncated and include a link to the full message.

Deck.ly certainly isn’t a new idea. Other services like Twitlonger have let users go over the 140 character limit for years. What is new about Deck.ly is the successful platform in which it will be embedded in. It could certainly shake things up in our Twitter streams. Additionally, Deck.ly could evolve into a basic blogging platform. Time will tell what the future holds for Tweetdeck.

Do you think this was a smart move by Tweetdeck? Are you a Tweetdeck user who has longed for this service? Leave a comment and let us  know.
