Tweetbot

A guide to the three major Twitter clients

While there are numerous Twitter clients, the three you are likely considering are the official Twitter app, Tweetbot, and Twitterrific. What differentiates these apps from the others? What follows is a detailed analysis to help you make an educated decision.

Tweetbot for Mac updated with support for macOS Sierra, extended Tweets and more

Tweetbot users will be happy to hear that the Tapbots have updated their popular Twitter client today to support the just-released macOS Sierra software. The release brings the app to version 2.4.2, and it includes several improvements.

Among these improvements is support for extended Tweets—a change Twitter made to its service this week that prevents media URLs and Quote Tweets from counting against your 140 character limit. It also now supports extended videos.

This tweak lets you send images via direct message in Tweetbot

There are a lot of people who choose to stick with the stock Twitter app because of Tweetbot 4’s price, but it is, without a doubt, one of the most popular third-party Twitter client apps out there for iOS devices.

Nevertheless, its popularity doesn’t make it perfect; there is one major downfall to Tweetbot 4 that many users find a little upsetting, and it’s that you can’t send photos in a direct message.

In comes a new jailbreak tweak dubbed Delen for Tweetbot, which now enables the feature for Tweetbot 4 users.

Tweetbot for Mac updated with new Topics feature, Collections support and more

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.

New Tweetbot update makes tweetstorming easier

The Tapbots on Friday issued an update for their popular iOS Twitter client Tweetbot 4, bringing the app to version 4.3. The update includes a number of improvements, and a brand new feature called Topics that promises to make tweetstorming easier.

A Topic is a way to let you quickly Tweet a group of related Tweets without having to manually reply to yourself and/or add the same hashtags over and over. You can activate Topics by tapping the gear menu in the Compose screen, and they sync via iCloud.

Tweetbot for Mac updated for El Capitan’s Split View multitasking and more

The Mac edition of Tweetbot, Tapbots’ popular Twitter client, has received an update this morning in the Mac App Store. The refreshed app now supports El Capitan’s Split View multitasking mode and can be taken to OS X’s native full screen mode as well.

With design refinements made to match Tweetbot 4 for iOS, this edition of Tweetbot for Mac also brings out muting changes and introduces an overahuled tweet details view that now shows conversation and replies in the same order as its iOS counterpart.

Tweetbot 4.1 is out with support for Apple Watch

The folks at Tapbots on Tuesday issued an update for their popular Twitter client Tweetbot 4, bringing the iOS app to version 4.1. The update brings about a number of fixes for bugs including timeline jumping and in-app browser issues, as well as proper Apple Watch support.

With Tweetbot on Apple Watch, you can view your ‘Activity’ feed—which shows things like @ Tweets, Favorited (or liked) Tweets and new followers—and reply to those notifications. You can also Favorite Tweets, reply to Direct Messages and compose Tweets using voice dictation.
