Looking for the best Twitter app for Mac? Now that Twitter has stopped supporting its official Mac app, we are left with two alternatives: Tweetbot and Twitterrific, which both provide a better experience, albeit with some limitations. Read up about both apps and find out which one is best for you.
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 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.
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.
