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.
- 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?
