Twitter has released its native client for Mac today. The Mac app from Twitter was announced at this year’s WWDC when Apple unveiled Catalyst, a new technology that would allow developers to easily port their iPad apps to the Mac.
Prior to this Catalyst-based Twitter for Mac app, Twitter had a dedicated client for Mac, which the company discontinued last year. Instead, the social network asked users to switch to the web version on Mac for a consistent experience. It wasn’t a popular move among Twitter users, though.
With Catalyst on macOS Catalina, Twitter for Mac now shares quite a lot of similarities with the Twitter for iPad app. That said, it doesn’t mean it’s an iPad clone for Mac. The app hosts all those features that you’d expect from a Mac app, including multiple windows, window resizing, drag and drop, and keyboard shortcodes. There’s also support for Dark Mode through which the app can adjust itself to your system-wide configuration.
Twitter for Mac is available for free on the Mac App Store, however, you’ll require macOS Catalina to use the app.
