The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

Monday, 21 December 2009
     “You consider that to be important?” he [Inspector Gregory] asked.
     “Exceedingly so.”
     “Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
     “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
     “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”
     “That was the curious incident,” remarked Sherlock Holmes.

As you’re probably aware our world of TweetDeck doesn’t stand still for long, if at all, and we’ve all been working on a variety of upgrades for our supported platforms (and a few which are not currently supported). Some of the fruits of our labour have already come to bear and others will be released in, what promises to be, a rather exciting new year. Alongside the development of our core products we’ve also been partnering up with a select group of bands, record labels, movie studios and media companies to develop themed TweetDecks. These special TweetDecks not only offer a potentially radical look and feel but also a dedicated channel straight to the artist or movie alongside the usual TweetDeck columns.

One such superb partner is Warner Brothers, and I’m very pleased to announce we have been working closely with them over the past few months to produce a Sherlock Holmes TweetDeck (called the “TweetDeck Telegram Co.”) which ties-in nicely with the holiday release of Sherlock Holmes (the movie) and the 221b online game. 

The TweetDeck Telegram Co. takes you back to a time before coloured avatars, shiny interfaces and rounded corners where the latest gossip on London life is spread by the Society Spy and the intimate details of life with Mr Holmes & Dr Watson is shared by their house keeper Mrs Hudson. The TweetDeck Telegram Co. gives you a direct channel to these characters and more from the 221b game.

221b is a two-player online game immersing you into the world of Sherlock Holmes and Dr.John Watson which takes you through the events leading up to the very first scene of the new Sherlock Holmes film. You can play with a friend, one as Holmes, one as Watson, or you can even play alone if you like, taking on the role of both characters. Just as in the stories, you and your friend will investigate crimes, sift through evidence and solve mysteries. You’ll also have to stake your reputation as detectives on your deductions. Get them right and you’ll soon be the envy of Scotland Yard. 

Get started with 221b and the TweetDeck Telegram Co. now. The game is afoot.
