The microblogging site reportedly reached an agreement to buy the popular Twitter client for more than $40 million in cash and stocks, according to
Just last month, the Wall Street Journal reported that Twitter was in advanced talks to acquire TweetDeck. Another company, UberMedia, had also reportedly been working out a deal to buy TweetDeck.
The two companies clashed in February when Twitter suspended UberMedia's three major third-party mobile applications -- UberSocial, Twidroyd and UberCurrents -- from use on its site for allegedly violating its use policies. Twitter reinstated access to the apps a day later.
Last month, reported that UberMedia is in the process of creating its own microblogging service that would compete directly with Twitter.
