Re-imagined from the ground up to be the Mac's most friendly, powerful and modern Twitter client. Twitterrific makes Twitter fun. ⁕ Twitter Your Way A clean, uncluttered timeline featuring just the content you care about. Tweets are presented in chronological order and other people's likes aren't placed in your timeline.

Moved the following/follower counts to their respective buttons on profile views. Removed the meaningless user ID field from profile views BUG FIXES. Character counting is once again in sync with Twitter's latest rules.

Fixed an issue that could cause repeated API requests if a user that sent you a direct message was suspended. 5.3.7 Oct 24, 2018.

The Preferences window now supports Mojave's dark theme BUG FIXES. Fixed a crash when uploading some unusual image formats.

Fixed issue that could cause thumbnail images to be resized with the wrong aspect ratio. Fixed an issue that sometimes caused images dropped from Photos into the compose window to attach to twice. 5.3.4 Aug 23, 2018. ⁕ Updated to comply with Twitter's new third-party app developer restrictions ⁕ On August 16th, Twitter initiated their plan to shut down several services that Twitterrific and other third party clients have long depended on to provide features you've come to know and love.

Twitter's rollout of this shutdown was done in stages so that the affected services would flicker 'on' and 'off' with increasingly long 'off' durations until finally remaining 'off' permanently. The final shutdown date has now arrived and as a result we have removed all of the features from Twitterrific that had become increasingly unreliable over the previous week. Live streaming has been removed. Workaround: Twitterrific will now automatically refresh every few minutes while the app is open, or you can manually pull to refresh. Direct message delivery will be delayed. Workaround: Wait longer, or use the official Twitter app and/or website. We are sorry for this and wish we had better news.

We will continue to work on the app for as long as we can and explore better workarounds where possible. Thank you for being a loyal Twitterrific customer over the years.

We are forever grateful. BUG FIXES. The option to remove emoji from display names now also applies to muffled tweets. Fixed an issue where muffle rules of the form '@username retweets' were incorrectly matching as if they were 'retweets @username' rules. 5.3.3 Jul 3, 2018. Fixed a few crashes and improved automatic timeline refreshing. IMPROVEMENTS.

Renamed the streaming preference to 'Automatically refresh timelines' BUG FIXES. Fixed a crash when uploading videos that were encoded a certain way. Fixed incorrect colors on popovers when running on macOS 10.14. Fixed a few other rare crashes DISCUSSION In the coming months, Twitter plans to discontinue the underlying services that we need to provide live streaming. To work around this, we've implemented more thorough automatic refreshing throughout the app - including for Lists which have never supported streaming.

Live streaming will continue to work until Twitter shuts it down at which point the app will fallback to automatically refreshing approximately every two minutes while you are using the app. 5.3.2 May 30, 2018.

Briancrink, macOS app severely flawed, needs timeline window update! Today I took the plunge and bought into the twitterrific ecosystem buying both the ad-free version of the iOS app and the macOS app. While the iOS app is flawless having every feature you could want (auto night mode, cross-platform timeline sync, etc) the macOS version 5.3.3 lacks in performace, streamline use, and design. Twitterrific, I would like a refund or corresponding bug fixes because this version is not worth any amount of money. Prior I used Tweetdeck and due to the lack of iOS app, I had to switch. The two biggest overall issues is the noticeable lag when opening and dragging a timeline window on my fully spec'd MacBook Pro 2015. It’s jitters beyond usability.

The second, why does the app not combine the timelines into ONE window? Instead it opens a new app window and the user is unable to join the timeline windows into one. This voids of any cohesion within the workflow. The new timeline window opens up tiny and requires the user to resize it. Please refer to the design of Tweetdeck or Tweetbot and update where you have a single fullscreen window with a timeline strip for home, notifications, mentions, messages, likes, lists, and search.

Tweetdeck’s UX design utilizes the fullscreen capability of the desktop while maximizing workflow. While twitterrific gets most right, the macOS app needs urgent updating or I would like a refund to buy tweetbot alternatively. Briancrink, macOS app severely flawed, needs timeline window update!

While twitterrific gets most right, the macOS app needs urgent updating or I would like a refund to buy tweetbot alternatively. Taramann, New to Twitterrific and really enjoying it! I’m mostly new to Twitterrific, having only used the iOS app years ago. Recently I decided to give both the Mac and iOS apps a try after hearing about how great they are on a popular tech podcast I listen to. I have to say, I’m very impressed and delighted so far.

Timeline sycning is great, the compose experience is nice and clean, and it’s easy to keep tabs on conversations. I also really love having the ability to pull Tweets out into their own window, it makes it easy to follow a conversation or a specific user’s timeline. I also love being able to command+O to view Tweets in a mini browser, which is handy for viewing details of a Tweet (like who liked or Retweeted something), as Twitter’s API makes it a real pain for Twitterrific to actually implement that in-app. There are tons of other useful keyboard shortcuts as well, which I discovered after reading their help docs.

Anyway, yay, love it and will be switching to it as my primary Twitter client on Mac (and on iOS too). Developer Response, So glad you're enjoying the app and thank you for taking the time to leave such wonderful feedback. Remember, if you have questions or problems to check our Twitterrific knowledge base or just ask us on twitter at @twitterrific. Thanks and enjoy!
