Tweetbot3.4.3

24 September 2020

Popular Twitter client.

Overview

Tweetbot is a full-featured OS X Twitter client with a lot of personality. Whether it's the meticulously-crafted interface, sounds and animation, or features like multiple timelines and column views, there's a lot to love about Tweetbot.

Features
  • 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.
  • Better Media. 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.
  • Timeline Filters. 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.
  • Mute 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.
  • Lists. Full support for managing your Twitter lists. Use them as custom curated timelines or even as your main timeline.
  • Notifications. View your mentions and activity in a combined view or separately under the new notifications tab.
  • Tweet Topics. Topics automatically chain together multiple Tweets to easily create tweetstorms or live blog events.
  • Multiple Accounts. Quickly switch between multiple accounts via the quick account picker, menu bar or keyboard shortcuts. Open them in separate windows or full screen spaces.
  • Quick Paste Links. Paste Tweet or profile web links directly into Tweetbot to view them instantly.

I have to laugh at all the idiots here complaining about the lack of a demo. You obviously didn't even bother going to the Tapbots site, because the "Try Tweetbot" bright yellow button is right below the buy button at the top of the page. It really couldn't be more obviously placed.

Great Twitter client. Until today, it was the only really good and actively-developed one for OS X left. But with Twitter for Mac 4.0 finally released today, I wouldn't have paid for this (yesterday!!). -0.5 because it's too expensive.

I like the new design and the functionality of the updated Tweetbot. As it was mentioned in the comments, it is probably the best Twitter client on the market. For those who may think the price is too high, I would say it isn't. You will understand this immediately after you start using this application.

While I fully agree that Tweetbot is the best Twitter app in existence...it doesn't come without problems. The biggest is that it will not hide on login. I have it configured to open on login, and in my user settings have it checked to hide when opening. It ignores this and is the only app open on my desktop every time I restart. For as much as this app costs...it should behave a little better. Oh, and forget about email support...the folks at Tweetbot have yet to answer my support email question about this problem.

Thanks for the "All Tweets" -notification feature. However, I found a bug (or a feature?): "Pin timeline at top when at top" doesn't work when the app is hidden. Something like "Keep scrolled to top" -preference like in Osfoora would be really acceptable.

Tried all the other Twitter clients, including Tweetdeck. None had all the features I wanted and they would often direct me to the Twitter web site to login to do certain things. This almost has it all, is easy to use and works well with its iOS companion. The only feature that I think is needed is scheduling tweets. You can save drafts, but you can't schedule.

Tweetbot is the best native Twitter client on Mac. It is too expensive but this move was obvious because of the new API. I tried all clients available for Mac: From YoruFukurou, which is nice, but ugly to Osfoora, which is also very nice but has some flaws right now. I cannot use another client than Tweetbot. It is functional, it has sync options, it is beautiful. But it is expensive. So expensive that I, as a student, cannot afford to buy it. And this makes me sad. Shame on Twitter for this. I can definitively recommend this app to everyone who can afford the 20 bucks, though.

Happily paid for the upgrade, if you use Twitter a lot, then Tweetbot running side by side on Mac and iPhone is very good however, I do hope the following will eventually occur: 1) Better unread tweet notification from the Menu Bar/ Dock, that seems a bit limited at the moment. 2) Viewing of conversation threads automatically as opposed to this being a 2 step process. 3) The ability to always scroll to top with Tweetmarker, as this isn’t always consistent. I know that the developers work hard, so am confident the above features will happen sooner or later.

I've tried every twitter desktop app over the past couple of years looking for one that satisfied my taste. Full keyboard control was #1 on my list of things I looked for. Filters being #2. No matter which app I tried I always returned to Yorufukurou's twitter app. Yorufukoru was/is unsurpassed for keyboard control AND filtering by any other twitter app I've tried. Even when I used the Alpha and Beta versions of Tweetbot they kept me reaching for my trackball/mouse more than I wanted to and filtering was almost nonexistent. I still kept returning to Yorufukoru. Tapbot's Tweetbot for Mac finally left beta and was released as a paid final version. I had a big decision to make. Risk that the improvements to the final version be enough to warrant buying it and be satisfied and set Yorufukoru aside or get disappointed, lose my money and still again return to Yorufukoru? I decided to take a chance and bought Tweetbot for Mac a few days ago. I must say I'm impressed with the improvements to the final release. The keyboard control comes in an extremely close second only to Yorufukoru. Good enough for my liking. Filter still doesn't match Yorufukoru's but again it is good enough for what I want. I REALLY like Tweetbot for Mac. Enough so that I haven't opened Yorufukoru but only once since I bought tweetbot and that was on the first day when I bought tweetbot and wasn't fully familiar with it's improvements over tweetbots beta. Thanks Tapbot for a GREAT twitter app! :D

How does this API limitation impact having multiple accounts and using it on different computers? So if I buy it from the Appstore, am I still able to use it on different computers and can I still have multiple twitter accounts?

Tweetbot has been awesome for years on iOS, and I've been using this since the alpha. the verdict? The competition doesn't come close - you can tell these guys have worked on every tiny detail to make this the best client for Twitter. When I saw the price tag I was a bit apprehensive, but we shouldn't let Twitter's restrictions force app developers out of the market leaving only Twitter's own…not so good alternatives. Getting this not only gives you the best experience of Twitter on the Mac, it supports folks who really need supporting as Twitter moves towards a more hostile developer environment.

Before I start, just want to clear my throat. Hold on a minute… Fuck You Twitter! There, that's better. I'm not usually a martyr, for any reason, least of all with commercial purchases, but in this case I felt I wanted to be. Because of Twitters insane new policy, Tapbots will have only so many of these that they can sell to try and make a decent return on all the work that have put in. As I already love my iOS versions of this app & even emailed them requesting a Mac version about 8 months ago, I'm glad to be able to purchase it. Sure, it would have been cheaper if Twitter, you know, just didn't, but they did. So yes, it's defiantly worth it. The other reviews here tell you all about how good the app is itself, I just wanted to chime in on the pricing. The one thing that concerns me is Twitter's new policies might turn off allot of folks and that with that, we might see Twitter become like My Space in the next 5 or so years, only to be replaced with something else. So be it. Somethings are worth it and this is one of them. Supporting Tapbots is also my way to say thanks for caring about what your customers think & thanks for creating & improving this great app!

I have to admit I was put off at first when I saw the price tag. But after reading their blog entry I understand. Due to Twitter's new API rules there is a very real limit to the number of copies they'll be able to sell, so it has to be worth their while. In an ideal world without Twitter API limits it would have been more like $10, but it's still a top-notch app and I am happy to support Tapbots by buying it. As for the app itself, I was already trying out the betas and have been using Tweetbot on my iPhone and iPad. Definitely a fan. It's easy to use but very functional. Supports the latest bells and whistles such as iCloud sync and Notification Center alerts.

Unfortunately because Twitter is now limiting the number of API tokens available, Tapbots has to charge a relatively high price for this wonderful application. This also means, that once the limit is reached, Tweetbot will no longer be for sale. It's absolutely worth the $19.99, and I'd recommend picking it up before it's no longer available.

It was excellent anyway, but has now overtaken Osfoora for me, simply because it correctly syncs my favourites. It’s little things like that make the difference in this crowded Twitter client market. The final version is going to be great, which will hopefully include the option to have the number of unread tweets shown in the Dock/ Menu Bar.

I have Tweetbot and I never reviewed it . I ALSO have it in my iPad. It is a great app on both. I don't know why I am getting frowns because there is a Tweetbot app and it is a terrific one. It is for iPad and it is great. There was a little confusion on my part which is understandable. It in my opinion the best app for Twitter and I prefer it to the others for its style and GUI.

just some words of advice for the beta. If you didn't use the alpha version then the beta is closed to you as the developer has saw fit to limit the amount of users on the Mac version citing Twitter api limitations. Secondly if you run 10.8.0 there's a bug in the keychain access which may prevent you from accessing Twitter through TweetBot and will make it seem like your account has been de-authorised, ie take you to the blog page which tells you all about the beta and where you download the beta. There's 2 ways of fixing this, either update to 10.8.1 or go to keychain and allow all com.tapbot.Tweetbot.* keychains to be accessed by all applications which isn't secure.

I use Tweetbot on my phone and love the look and the interface. When the OS X version came out, I downloaded it right away. After a few weeks of moderate use, I can say that it is just as enjoyable to use as the iOS app. The interface is very easy to use, and there is not a ton of bloatware like some SoNet clients have. It is fast, stable and takes up vey little screen real estate which is important on a small laptop screen. Being only in beta, we will see if it maintains its streamlined charm. The bottom line is that I no longer log into Twitter to check out the stream of tweets. I credit this to the lightweight, and advertising free environment.

I have to say that I am liking Tweetbot markedly more than YoruFukurou and the other various clients I've used hitherto (which are very many over the last 5 years). If it can bring some of the features of the previous version of TweetDeck then we'd have a killer. I particularly like the way you guys handle the Direct Messages. Best implementation I've seen yet guys, bravo. I've tried to talk other client devs into doing this the same way you've got it and even considered developing my own Twitter client as there are a lot of things that can be done to really improve this space, but I'm really glad to see you hitting this.

I enjoy Tweetbot on the iPad, but I still have a usability problem with the OSX version. The 'Huge' font option is still not large enough to please me (although ≥ v0.6.0). Why not give users the option to select *any* font size in preferences due to the wide variations in monitor top resolutions available today?

A welcome addition, of course and from a few minutes use, I can see how useful this is. I used to use Echofon, then changed to Osfoora which is now my primary Twitter client. Look forward to seeing how Tweetbot shapes up to that as it goes through its Alpha and Beta stages.

I tested the Alpha for some hours and I am happy to say: Yes, there are bugs, lots of 'em. But this nice app is in its alpha state and it is more stable than the official Twitter app right now. The only one with a similar UI is Osfoora, also a very good Twitter app, but it lacks some features which Tweetbot has. Congratulations to the devs!
