Has Twitter finally bought TweetDeck?
Twitter has finally acquired TweetDeck, according to the latest reports.
The Twitter client has been the focus of buyout rumours, with Twitter as well as third-party developer UberMedia both believed to be wooing the London-based firm.
Now, reports suggest Twitter has won the bidding battle, and added TweetDeck to its collection after picking up iPhone app Tweetie last year.

According to the report from CNN, the deal closed yesterday, but neither firm has yet to confirm it.
Twitter said via the site: “For all those who might be curious, we continue to not comment on rumours.”
Previous reports have suggested Twitter was paying up to $50 million for TweetDeck.
With more and more users accessing the service via third-party apps, Twitter has attempted to regain control over its own service. Over the past year, it has bought or created its own apps, changed how third-party APIs work to limit access, and temporarily banned UberMedia’s apps after saying the firm broke its terms and conditions.
