TweetDeck makes one of the most popular Twitter clients for desktop computers. The company also offers iPhone and iPod versions of its software. Next up? Google Android. The company recently announced that a beta version of its Android app should be available this week.

If you’re having a hard time figuring out why you’d want to use a third party Twitter app when Twitter offers it own microblogging software for Google Android, there are at least two reasons. First, TweetDeck isn’t just a Twitter app. It also works with Facebook, Google Buzz, Foursquare, and other social services.

The other killer feature? You can use TweetDeck to connect to multiple Twitter accounts.

TweetDeck CEO Iain Dodsworth posted a short (like 21 seconds, short) video on YouTube showing the login process for the Android app. There’s a single sign-on screen that lets you choose from your Twitter accounts using a drop-down menu.

Unfortunately, that’s about all we know about the app for now. The video concludes before Iain actually starts reading or sending messages. I suppose we’ll have more details soon enough.

You can check out the video after the break.
