TweetDeck Skin Promotes Sherlock Holmes

TweetDeck221B.jpgElementary, my dear tweeter: Twitter client TweetDeck is helping to promote upcoming Warner Bros. theatrical Sherlock Holmes, which debuts Christmas Day, as well as related online video game 221b, with a TweetDeck Telegram Co. TweetDeck skin, which includes black-and-white icons and an antique font, CNET reported.

TweetDeck founder and CEO Iain Dodsworth said in a post on the TweetDeck Blog:

As you’re probably aware, our world of TweetDeck doesn’t stand still for long, if at all, and we’ve all been working on a variety of upgrades for our supported platforms (and a few which are not currently supported). Some of the fruits of our labor have already come to bear, and others will be released in what promises to be a rather exciting new year. Alongside the development of our core products, we’ve also been partnering up with a select group of bands, record labels, movie studios and media companies to develop themed TweetDecks. These special TweetDecks not only offer a potentially radical look and feel, but also a dedicated channel straight to the artist or movie alongside the usual TweetDeck columns.

One such superb partner is Warner Bros., and I’m very pleased to announce that we have been working closely with them over the past few months to produce a Sherlock Holmes TweetDeck (called the TweetDeck Telegram Co.) that ties in nicely with the holiday release of Sherlock Holmes (the movie) and the 221b online game.

The TweetDeck Telegram Co. takes you back to a time before colored avatars, shiny interfaces and rounded corners where the latest gossip on London life is spread by the Society Spy and the intimate details of life with Mr. Holmes & Dr. Watson is shared by their housekeeper, Mrs. Hudson. The TweetDeck Telegram Co. gives you a direct channel to these characters and more from the 221b game.
