Threadsy Challenging TweetDeck By Supporting IM, Twitter, Facebook, and E-mail

Posted Sep 22, 2009

TweetDeck already sorts Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter for you but the Adobe AIR powered application doesn’t have e-mail or IM software yet. According to a Threadsy presentation at the TechCrunch50 conference, the average 23 year old has 6 different accounts.

Threadsy separates inbound and unbound messages into columns too. Messages directed to you such as incoming e-mail, @replies sent to you on Twitter, and Facebook messages placed on your wall are in the inbound column. The unbound column is all the rest of the activity.

Threadsy will make money through contextual advertising. Threadsy can collect messages from 60 different sources. The company was founded in June 2008 in San Francisco. The company was founded by Rob Goldman and Udi Nir.
