TweetDeck, the Twitter subsidiary used to manage accounts on the micro-blogging service, has been handed a 99 day ultimatum by Companies House to file its accounts – or face being dissolved.

It follows the issue of a £375 fine to both Twitter and TweetDeck back in December, since which Twitter has belatedly responded but TweetDeck still haven’t bothered - netting them another £375.

A Companies House spokesperson told Sky News: “This is a non-compliance issue and a compulsory strike-off action has commenced. TweetDeck is still yet to file. That means they have 99 days to file up-to-date accounts or face being dissolved and struck-off the register.”

Founded in February 2008 TweetDeck was required to have filed its accounts back in September 2012, prompting Companies House to begin proceedings to strike it off Companies House.

If TweetDeck fails to respond to this latest request it could be fined again for a total of £1,500 and leave itself open to debt recovery procedures and court action.
