Striking off notice for TweetDeck will not threaten its existence

The multi-column British-built Twitter application TweetDeck will continue running as normal despite being served a striking off notice by the UK’s official business regulator.

Twitter bought the company, and now employ the staff, in May 2011 for a rumoured US$40 million, in a bid to stop advertising competition arising from the application.

Sky News obtained the letter from Companies House sent to TweetDeck Ltd, dated January 22, which read: “The Registrar of Companies gives notice that, unless cause is shown to the contrary, at the expiration of 3 months from the above date the name of TweetDeck Ltd will be struck off the register and the company will be dissolved.”

TweetDeck is reported to have missed account filing deadlines in September and December last year.

Even if it is struck off, it will have no effect on either Twitter or TweetDeck, the app, because its assets are now owned by the US social media giant.
