Legacy version, please upgrade to Tweetbot 3 for Mac instead.


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.


Multiple Timelines. Quickly switch between your lists as your main timeline.
Multiple Windows and Columns. Display timelines from different accounts side by side.
Notification Center support.
Beautiful Retina graphics.
Mute filters lets you block messages from users without unfollowing them. You can also mute hashtags and specific keywords.


Legacy version, please upgrade to Tweetbot 3 for Mac instead.

What's New

Version 2.5.8

On August 16th Twitter will disable parts of their public interface that we use in Tweetbot. Because Twitter has chosen not to provide alternatives to these interfaces we have been forced to disable or degrade certain features. We're sorry about this, but unfortunately this is totally out of our control.

- Timeline streaming is now disabled. Your timelines will now refresh automatically every 1-2 minutes instead.
- Notifications for Mentions, Direct Messages, Follows and Follower's Tweets will now be delayed by a few minutes.
- Notifications for Likes and Retweets have been disabled.
- Activity tab has been removed.

Tweetbot for Mac

I use Tweetbot on iOS and wanted to get the Mac version, it dropped to a more reasonable price so I jumped. It’s a nice app and works well. I’d like if it had a dark UI option (like the iOS app). I’d also prefer if the app icon was round so as to fit in with some of the other apps in my dock (AppStore, Photos, OnyX, Steam), the large square icon looks a little obnocious amongst my other apps!

Go to Twitter app

Now that Echofon for osx is gone (going) this is now my leading Twitter app. I like the way it offers interaction with it's iOS apps via iCloud. There's a lot here under the hood, too, and I'm just figuring it all out as I use it. I know $20 is a lot, but it is an app I use EVERY day.

Ok, but dissapointed

I found the official twitter account pretty limiting so I bought this. The biggest thing I miss is seeing tweets & replies and ‘threads’ of conversations.

Tweetbot doesn’t do that, and in general I found its syncing pretty poor.

I end up just using the website, which is a real shame.

I guess it’s got some good features, but for me, I wish I hadn’t bought it. It didn’t deliver what i’d hoped.
