Twitter Sent Official TweetDeck Closure Letter After Failing To File Business Accounts

Last week we reported that Twitter client favourite TweetDeck was in trouble after failing to file company business accounts in September and December of last year. Because of the delay the company was fined a total of £750.

Well, things have taken a turn for the worse as Twitter have now been sent a letter by regulators warning of TweetDeck’s impending closure.

Here’s the skinny. TweetDeck Ltd is a UK company, and a subsidiary of US-based Twitter, Inc. TweetDeck has failed to file company accounts on multiple occasions (Twitter’s UK subsidiary was also late with its accounts) and, as such, has gotten itself into a lot of hot water. In a letter dated January 22, Companies House have written to Twitter CEO Dick Costolo and general counsel Alex Macgillivray stating: “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.”

While there is no evidence that TweetDeck has any tax liability, Twitter has until April 21, 2013 to sort all of this out with the authorities. Fail to take any action and the good name of TweetDeck will be struck from the records – and with it, what was once just about everybody’s favourite Twitter client.
