It seems as if the London based social media application Tweetdeck is finally going to be acquired by Twitter. According to Mike Arrington (founder of TechCrunch) and his sources, the deal is going to be officially announced in the next few days.
Earlier this year Tweetdeck was purchased by UberMedia for a undisclosed sum between $25 million – $30 million. With Tweetdeck and other Twitter-related services UberMedia probably became to powerful for Twitter to just sit and wait. The Twitter-deal is rumored to be in the $40 million – $50 million range (includes cash and Twitter stock). Tweetdeck was founded by Ian Dodsworth back in 2008.
