Carrizo Plain Raven '10Image by flythebirdpath~} to upstate New York via FlickrAfter Twitter acquired TweetDeck, many users where afraid of Twitter removing Facebook or Buzz support. While this didn't happen just now, deck.ly was removed. People on the market freaked out.

So the first feature is removed. Deck.ly was used a user posted more than 140 chars. Now with the removal of deck.ly from TweetDeck on all platforms, it's as good as dead. What Twitter wants to do with it in the future in uncertain.

I have to be honest, up until now, I didn't even know about deck.ly. So it's still no big deal for me. I wonder how many used this knowingly. But the removal leaves a bitter taste. What's next?
