Twitter has announced that Twitter Dashboard for businesses will be closing down on 3rd February, just 7 months after it was introduced.
The announcement was made via a series of tweets on Twitter Dashboards Twitter profile on 10th January.
The free tool was helped businesses schedule tweets, engage with customers and gain analytics. All tweets currently scheduled in Twitter Dashboard will run using Tweetdeck.
Twitter has not provided a reason for the closure, however there has been speculation that the similarities of tools available in both Twitter Dashboard and Tweetdeck has devalued the existence of Twitter Dashboard.
