Not "might have". The developer shut it down sometime in 2010.

So far my fav twitter app. It doesn't look as pretty as Twitter or other apps, but it does the job well. Quite stable and reliable, and rich in feature like auto shortening and displaying number of messages on the Lists.

Keep up the good work!

UNFORTUNATELY Twitter bought Tweetie.app for Mac and iPhone and is not interested in developing the Mac-App, so Tweetie (one of the best Twitter-Clients for Mac) is dead. By the way: An ironic thank you for that...
I tried lots of Twitter-Clients for Mac, my choice: Nambu.
Nambu because: Lots of features, clear, easy to use, stable and support is awesome.
It just works very well, and that's what an app should do. Five stars, good work!

ATM, version 2.1.2b has a serious bug:

after adding a second (or third) twitter Account, you cannot access the first one anymore to change any settings! Only the last created account is available to change any settings (e.g. twitpic, bit.ly)

PS: I did a new installation (no old files in ~/Library)

Bug workaround:

the problem is that the twitter icons in the Accounts settings are not click-able.
click at the thin surrounding space besides the big icon to chose another Account.

PS: I found it by accident: the chosen Account had suddenly changed while clicking unintentionally somewhere on the screen. :o)

Once again, another two updates in two days, neither of which worked. The wheel just keeps spinning. I'd love this program to work (and it is free) but it's time to give up.

This used to be my Twitter client way back before I switched to using Twitterrific (mainly because I preferred to 'subdued' colourscheme of Twitterrific). Nambu has come a long way tho, maybe I should have another look at it.

I am very happy with Nambu for Mac OS X. I use Twitter for B2B tweeting and following and need a desktop client that simplifies the management of both actions.
Nambu does a great job.
I would pay $20 for Nambu as I have come to depend upon it.

My only complaint about Nambu is that the developer uses Get Satisfaction for the customer forum and I personally think that Get Satisfaction is just pathetic.
