TweetDeck is switching its default video Tweeting platform today, from 12seconds to TwitVid. TwitVid.com will serve as the video service across all existing TweetDeck products, as well as all new products released by TweetDeck in 2010.
TwitVid will be integrated into the next iteration of the TweetDeck’s desktop application, which is expected to be launched next month. TwitVid will also be the default video application in TweetDeck’s iPhone application and soon-to-be-released Android application.
Launched last year, TwitVid.com allows users to upload, view and share videos in both HD and SD. Essentially the TwitPic of video, TwitVid rolled out a Twitter video application for the iPhone and unveiled a realtime search engine and analytics platform last December.
Scoring a deal with TweetDeck, one of the most popular and widely-used social media clients on the market, is a huge coup for TwitVid, not to mention the fact that the startup edged out competitor 12seconds for the spot.
TweetDeck is a Twitter client for desktop, web, and mobile devices. TweetDeck was originally an Adobe Air desktop application, designed with a unique columned user interface. Its goal was to be a realtime application that allowed users to monitor that information in a single concise view. TweetDeck integrated services from Twitter, Twitscoop, 12seconds, Stocktwits and Facebook. In 2011, Twitter acquired TweetDeck and rebuilt the application in HTML5.
