Twitter To Buy TweetDeck?

Twitter is reportedly in "advanced talks" to buy TweetDeck Inc., maker of a batch of mobile, browser and desktop Twitter clients that are popular with pro users.

The acquisition report comes just two months after UberMedia was rumored to have acquired the company for around $25 million (there still hasn't been any confirmation of the purchase).

While the Wall Street Journal's "people familiar with the matter" suggest that Twitter may be considering dropping $50 million for the company, TweetDeck chief executive Iain Dodsworth declined to comment. The Twitter Comms tweeted, "We don't comment on rumors. We don't provide off-the-record background on rumors. We don't wink twice or release puffs of smoke abt rumors."
