It’s been a rocky Wednesday so far for Tweetdeck, to say the least.
The popular Twitter-owned dashboard app has been hit with a nasty hack and shut down its service at about 10 a.m. PT today.
The hack seemed to affect those using the Chrome version of Tweetdeck vs. the desktop client. Regardless, it’s a good idea to log out of your Tweetdeck account until this issue is fixed.
We’ll update this story as we hear more. In the meantime, I’d recommend using Hootsuite as an alternative Twitter dashboard app.
Update, 11:03 a.m.
Looks like Tweetdeck is back:
We've verified our security fix and have turned TweetDeck services back on for all users. Sorry for any inconvenience.
