TweetDeck Joins the Twitter Flock

The last week has been, as I’m sure you can imagine, hectic. It’s all out the bag now - TweetDeck has been acquired by Twitter. It’s absolutely amazing news and I’m really proud to be a part of it. As part of the deal, my employment, along with the entire team, has transferred over to Twitter.

I came along fairly late in the day in all this having only joined in January of this year. I never guessed that by now I’d be working for Twitter as a Software Engineer. I’m totally stoked.

I’ll still be working on mobile clients - and hopefully I’ll get more time to work on Chrome hacks.

So, congratulations everyone! Special congratulations to Iain… it proves that scratching an itch really can lead you down paths you never expect. Let this be a lesson to Software Engineers / Programmers everywhere.
