TweetDeck boosted by $2 million VC funding


TweetDeck, the Twitter management app, has been given $2 million boost by venture capitalists.

The financial boost comes from the combined forces of PROfounders Capital, BetaWorks and The Accelerator Group.

"Tweetdeck is about Twitter and so much more. We feel it can become the browser for the real-time web," Sean Seton-Rogers, a partner at PROfounder Capital told IT PRO. "As people need to manage all the information coming to them from Facebook, Twitter, and other apps, Tweetdeck is a lifesaver."

PROfounders Capital was sent up by industry heavyweights Brent Hoberman the co-founder of and Bebo founder Michael Birch.
