Twitter finally pulls the plug on its official app for the Mac

When Twitter acquired Tweetie, we had high hopes that Twitter would bring a lot of powerful features to its app for Mac, but it appears that the company has other plans. The social media company is apparently shutting down its Mac app.

Yesterday, Twitter’s Support account revealed that its app has been pulled from the Mac App Store, and in 30 days “will no longer be supported.” The company said that it’s “focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that’s consistent across platforms.” This means that users will have to use the website, Tweetdeck or other third-party apps.


Twitter hasn’t done a good job of keeping its Mac app up-to-date either. Many hardcore users are usually opting to use other apps that have developed over the years like Tweetbot (yours truly) or Twitterrific. Twitter closing down its own Mac store app is more of a closing note than a major loss to its offerings for users.
