TweetDeck, which offers free software to help people organize their Twitter streams, has raised funds in a first round that could end up being as much as $500,000, according to reports. The round was led by Betaworks. The idea for TweetDeck came about six months ago when Iain Dodsworth was looking for a better way to organize the Tweets he was receiving from following 30 people. Since then, the software has been downloaded 250,000 times.
