If you’re a fan of TweetDeck and you happen to use the Windows-based app, it’s time to start saying “goodbye.” Twitter announced today that it will end support for that particular service on April 15. 

News that it would no longer support a standalone Windows app, comes as Twitter creates a more seamless log-in experience, the company said in a blog post Thursday.

“To better focus on enhancing your TweetDeck experience, we’ll no longer support a standalone Windows app,” project manager Amy Zima writes.

Those using Windows will still be able to visit TweetDeck on the web.

As part of the company’s log-in revamp, it says that user who are logged in to any Twitter website — or its analytics page — will no longer need to log in to TweetDeck separately.

“Now, when you move from TweetDeck to Twitter websites, or from these websites to TweetDeck, you’ll be automatically logged in — making it even easier to move between the tools you use daily,” Zima writes.
