That said, the app delivers a good handful of features Mac users will like, beyond standard items like support for multiple panes, and access to Twitter’s main features like mentions, DMs, favorites, retweets, quote tweets, trending topics, saved searches, lists, and more. It’s nothing like Instagram because Instagram never had the third party clients like Twitter does. The writing has been on the wall for a while, but damn is this shit. Looks like Reddit users force a company to make a change again. Permalink; embed. Tweetbot for Mac is amazing, chronological, streaming, pin to top, the list goes on. Hopefully a company like Reddit would let 3rd party clients play ball still if they abide by certain rules (they have to show Reddit's ads or something) because their current client is shit compared to the 3rd party alternatives. Replies retweets 2 oct 2015 tweetbot has been my client of choice for years, both ios and os x, include twitter's ads, although it may be required to at some point 27 aug 2012 on twitter the mac.
Tweetbot is an award-winning, full-featured* Twitter client for the Mac. It has a beautiful interface with light & dark themes, multiple-column support and much more.
* Twitter does not grant 3rd party apps access to every single feature that is available on Twitter’s website.
Tweetbot’s new optional expanded sidebar provides one-click access to all of your subsections like lists, direct message conversations, and saved searches.
Drag & Drop Columns.
Columns have been redesigned from the ground up to be faster and easier to use. Just drag the column circle to the right to add columns and back to the left to hide them. Columns persist even when hidden.
Automatically play videos and GIFs in your timeline with a quick mouseover. A click on media opens it up in our lightning fast new media viewer.
Your eyes will appreciate the new dark theme in low light situations. And the images and video in your timeline will love the extra attention.
The powerful timeline filters from Tweetbot for iOS are finally on the Mac. Quickly filter a timeline to show only tweets with media, retweets, links, or create your own keyword or rules-based filters.
Hide Tweets in your timelines by specific users, keywords, hashtags, or even the client that published the Tweet. Create limited time filters to avoid spoilers for upcoming blockbuster movies or sporting events.
Full support for managing your Twitter lists. Use them as custom curated timelines or even as your main timeline.

- Fixed a launch issue when running with compact navigation side bar.
It’s getting there
TB3 was perhaps released a little early as it lacks some UI polish, (useful TB2) features and has some new bugs. These tweaks are being drip fed back into the app, which is great but I still find myself getting frustrating at some of the changes. That said, I contemplated moving back to TB2 but the things that are fixed in TB3 ARE nice.
I really hope the updates keep coming as I’d love for TB3 to become as functional as TB2.
Edit: Unlike others, I’m fine without touchbar support as I despise the thing.
The best! (although no Touch Bar support yet...)
Excellent app and highly recommended. The latest release now allows you to go to the original tweet of an image/video in someone's profile, yay!
Touch Bar support is still absent, even for video playback controls where it would be extremely useful. I know that the market for third-party Twitter apps is harder than ever (despite them all being superior to what Twitter itself delivers), but it would be nice to see this added.
Please fix the mentions sidebar icon...
Still use this app everyday even though it is now extremely limited due to Twitter's greed.
I understand you're trying to be edgy, but the ampersand symbol on a lean is awful to look. Please fix this :)
