Twitter for Mac continues to suffer from its on-again, off-again death. They clearly don’t consider it a first-class citizen compared to the other clients. So I highly recommend the new Tweetbot for Mac 2.0, which I’ve been trying out the past week or so. First-class all the way.
Yes, it’s $12.99. But you should be okay paying for a piece of software you’re going to use a ton. Plus, it’s OS X Yosemite-pretty.
I’ve seen a ton of press for Tweetbot’s OS X version since it launched back in 2012 and it has been overwhelmingly positive.
It’d be interesting to see the install numbers for Twitter’s official app which, as Siegler mentions, has been almost completely ignored since it arrived in the Mac App Store several years ago.
If you’re on the hunt for an alternative, give Tweetbot a look, spread the word, and share your thoughts.
