Tweetageddon Has Begun: Tweeterena Sells Assets On Ebay

Filed as News on April 16, 2010 10:18 pm

Despite the “positive spin” that some twitter developers are trying to make about the Tweetie acquisition and Twitter partnering with RIM, it looks like the first casualty of Tweetageddon has appeared, as Andrew Weekes is putting his twitter app Tweeterena up for sale (hat tip: GigaOm)

Tweeterena currently has a rapidly increasing user base with almost 50,000 users worldwide.

You will be acquiring this brand at an exciting time, – 1 week after the Tweeterena 2 for iPad launch! You will also be acquiring the source code project and marketing materials to Tweeterena 2 for iPhone/iPod touch, which is an unreleased, almost complete application that is already being awaited by thousands of users thanks to our recent marketing campaign for Tweeterena 2 for iPad.

Andrew Weekes also mentions that the Tweeterena iPad app had been purchased by over 1,500 customers, and (thus far) seems to be doing fairly well on the iPad app store (underneath the social networking category).

Fortunately Weekes has a decent day job, so this loss will not hurt him financially, although we may see other companies begin to shut down as Twitter begins to implement official apps across other devices like Palm, Nokia and Android.

    How much can you get for an app that is going to be forcibly extinct in a few months? Shame on the users for trying to dump it off on someone who doesn’t know better… they made some money and it was unfortunate that the inevitable happened earlier than we thought… but come on now!

    I’m not sure if this is Tweetageddon or only Twestlemania…
