The Tapbots on Thursday issued an update for Tweetbot for Mac, bringing the popular Twitter client to version 2.4. The release brings the new Topics feature over from the recent iOS update, Collections support and other enhancements.

As you’ll recall, A Topic is a way to let you quickly Tweet a group of related Tweets without having to manually reply to yourself. You can activate Topics by tapping the gear menu in the Compose screen, and they sync across devices via iCloud.

Here are your full release notes:

This release introduces Topics. A Topic is a way to let you quickly Tweet a group of related Tweets without having to manually reply to yourself and/or manually add the same hashtags over and over again. They are really great for rapid fire live Tweeting events.

You can access Topics by tapping the gear menu in the New Tweet screen. They are also stored in and require iCloud, so you can start a topic on your iPhone and easily continue it on your iPad and Mac.

– Collections Support
– Improved Quote Preview in Compose Window
– Removed play/pause button from video playback. Clicking on the video will toggle play/pause.
– Fixed an issue where incoming DM’s would play a sound even when notification center was set to ‘Do not Disturb’.
– If you mute someone you don’t follow, it now automatically mutes searches, mentions and lists.
– Fixed an issue with using the left-arrow key when in the timeline search field.
– Fixed an issue with tab jumping too many columns.
– Fixed an issue where you could drag additional images or video into a tweet that already had the max number of attachments.
– Fixed an issue where videos would fail to upload.
– Fixed an issue where .mov files could not be added as video.
– Fixed an issue where the progress spinner wouldn’t disappear after loading.
– Fixed an issue where text could be cut off at the bottom after adding an image in the compose window.

Tweetbot for Mac is available in the Mac App Store for $9.99.

  • So what ever happened to Twitter’s plan to ditch the 140-character limit? Just curious.

      I think they are going to have images and links not count towards the 140-character limit instead.
