Twitter finally returns to Mac with new Catalyst app
Prior to this Catalyst app, Twitter had a dedicated client for Mac, which the company discontinued last year.
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.
