I wish they would support Tweet Marker, which has become indispensable for me. So far only Twitterrific support Tweet Marker on the mac. TweetBot does it on iOS. Hope for more clients. Once you've grown accustomed to it, you'll never wanna miss it again.

Used this application for some years. But today the developer pulled the rug out from under it and none of the older versions will work any more. AND they release a new version that requires 10.14, essentially turning their back on the older users who use this to access Twitter.

Has anyone used Night Owl on macOS Mojave yet? I've just started using it because neither Tweetbot or Twitterrific will run. It seems pretty good, but I've tried altering the font size of the text and it doesn't seem to make any difference. Does anyone have any idea why this could be?

Love this application and have for a couple years now. It would be nice if it was updated to support Notification Center (I have longed removed growl from my system). And maybe give it a OS X Yosemite look. Would also be nice to be able to download images from the preview pane.

How do we contribute money? YoruFukurou can be run entirely off of keyboard shortcuts. You can also customise font-size so you can easily read the timelines on different size monitors, even colours (I don't like the low contrast grey for reading). A bit plain when you first open it up, YoruFukurou is the most amazing Twitter client out there at any price. Unbelievable that it's free. YoruFukurou is a work tool par excellence. Keyboard shortcuts are here: https://sites.google.com/site/yorufukurou/home-en Space - Select the oldest unread tweet in the selected tab Enter - Reply to selected tweet Shift + Enter - Reply to all users related to selected tweet D - Send direct message F - Toggle favorite status H - Show selected user's timeline L - Open all links in the tweet R - Open addressed tweet in browser T - Open tweet in browser A - Show timeline of @user in the tweet W - Open website of the selected user 0 - Select the latest tweet in the tab E - Preview image G - Search for hashtags J - Move down K - Move up → - Reply to selected tweet without focusing on the post input field (for sending reply to multiple users) ← - Reset the post input field Command + → - Move to next tab Command + ← - Move to previous tab Option + → - Select the selected tweet in next tab Option + ← - Select the selected tweet in previous tab

This is my Twitter client of choice. I used Nambu which I loved a whole lot but the developers stopped updating it and I was looking for a decent replacement. I have found it in YoruFukurou. Does anyone know if YoruFukurou 2.78 is compatible with OS X Mavericks ? I'm waiting to upgrade my system in case this app and a few others aren't...

My favorite Twitter client - even supports Tweet Marker! Search capabilites are powerful enough for my requirements - also managing multiple accounts is ok. However, having a tab per account would perhaps make things even better. Hence 4 stars.

The best OS X Twitter client bar none. Great feature set, easy to use, free… I couldn't ask for more except maybe for Tweet Marker support.

I've learned from the developer's site that the Title of the app means NightOwl in english. Perhaps they should have called it that instead as I'm sure a lot of off color jokes are making the rounds regarding the current title.

Looks like the company took the app off Apple's App Store or perhaps Apple rejected it. It's now available with the choice to update automatically from the app's menu instead of via the app store. The stranger thing is the older version is still available via Apple's App Store. Color me confused!?

Best twitter app bar none. Tried pretty much all others and they don't compare to the features and value.

best twitter client around right now. and i strongly doubt any of the others will catch up to Yorufukurou for years if ever. now that Yorufukurou is at the mac app store the developer has really been improving this already outstanding twitter client. but you don’t have to dl it from the mac app store — see comments below for a dl link.

Lots of nice touches make this the best Twitter client I've tried. Excellent keyboard navigation. Has a keyboard shortcut for shrinking URLs. Has lots of sensible configuration options (like color scheme, how to "Copy" tweets, hotkey for activating the app). You can view the error console. You can define tabs that filter your timeline with a regex. For all the talk of how Twitter clients have stimulated UI innovation, I haven't seen much that impresses me. YoruFukurou stands out for all its nice little touches.

At first I loved this app - my favorite feature was the translator. But after using it for a few days, I noticed that it crashes upon quitting. Nearly every time after a long session - and it doesn't matter which computer I try it on. Also, this apps needs better Twitter integration - I can't seem to manage followers or control lists as I'd like. Nice work overall though. thanks

I previously rated this 4 stars due to lack of multiple account support. Now with multiple account support added I'm upping my rating to 5 stars

Great improvements by supporting multiple accounts! Many thanks for this. This app is a very serious alternative to Twitter for Mac. It lacks a bit concerning the UI, but it sports way more other great features.

Multiple accounts added - perfect! The only thing I am REALLY missing very badly now is twitlonger integration. That would be icing on the cake!

I love this little app. It's not the shiniest twitter app out there but it's free - and supports lists, which seems to be something many other minimal twitter apps can't handle. My favorite thing about the app is having tabs for each of my lists. I use lists a lot- it's useful for "following" app updates, devs, etc. that I don't necessarily want in my timeline. My only wish for this app is that it could live in the menubar with no dock icon. Well, and that it was a tiny bit more polished looking. But other than that it's great.

I love this app. It's my default twitter client now. Been using it for 3 or 4 months now. I own Socialite (which was my default twitter client) and twitteriffic. I keep trying Kiwi, Nambu, Tweetie and Echofon (also Socialte) atleast once every week or two but keep going back to YoruFukurou. Granted, it doesn't support multiple accounts (YET!) but I only have one account so no biggie for me. I love how I can filter specific people I follow into their own tab (removing them out of the main timeline). I haven't experienced any stability issues. The developer(s) are prompt with updates when twitter makes changes as well as making improvements. I'm a quadriplegic (paralized from neck down) and operate my mac with a mouthstick (typing stick/wand) and full simplistic keyboard control is a major asset to me (though I also use a trackball). I suggest this app highly if multiple accounts isn't necessary to you. I gave it 4 stars, multiple account support would have ranked it a 5 to me.

I am liking what I've seen so far, the fact that I can set every single color for my timelines - priceless. Now if you could add a menubar item you got me hooked for life! Keep it up, it's a really nice app :)
