Twitter Buys TweetDeck

Peter Kafka interviews TweetDeck honcho Iain Dodsworth:

Kafka: So to beat this into the ground: TweetDeck will continue to exist as a standalone product? There’s been a lot of speculation that Twitter would buy TweetDeck and then shut it down.

Dodsworth: Yes, they will continue as standalone products. From a technical standpoint we’ll move towards becoming part of the platform. They won’t be shutting it down, they are in fact investing further in its future.

My question: will TweetDeck have to use OAuth?
