If you want to write longer message, stick with Facebook.

That's the message Twitter is sending today with the announcement that TweetDeck will no longer support Deck.ly, a feature that allowed users to write longer messages.

According to Mediabistro, Twitter announced Deck.ly's demise with a tweet: “As part of the process of making TweetDeck more consistent with Twitter.com & Twitter's mobile apps, we're removing deck.ly from our apps.”

I'd say more, but I guess I should get used to writing shorter messages.
