Popular stream reader TweetDeck turned two on July 4th, and founder Iain Dodsworth just put up a post giving an update on the company’s progress. Tweetdeck now employs 15 people and recently raised more than $3 million in a series B round, led by betaworks. The company’s product started out as a Twitter client, but now supports multiple streams, including Facebook, Foursquare, Google Buzz, LinkedIn, and Myspace.

Some stats:

  • TweetDeck’s desktop client has been downloaded more than 15 million times.
  • The iPhone app has been downloaded more than 2.5 million times .
  • Across all of its apps, TweetDeck’s servers sync more than 7 million Twitter search columns, and adds 25,000 a day.
  • Roughly 4 million Tweets and other status updates are sent through TweetDeck every day.
  • Users upload 30,000 images a day through the service

(Note that last May TweetDeck reported 15 million total downloads across all its apps).

The always-coy Dodsworth also hints that the company has “been involved in a number of fascinating and strategic discussions with household-name companies which have been…both fascinating and strategic.”  Hmm . . . will TweetDeck make it to its third birthday before getting bought? And more importantly, will its HTML5 browser version come out before then?
