What's New in Version 2.4
This release introduces Topics. A Topic is a way to let you quickly Tweet a group of related Tweets without having to manually reply to yourself and/or manually add the same hashtags over and over again. They are really great for rapid fire live Tweeting events.
You can access Topics by clicking the gear menu in the New Tweet screen. They are also stored in and require iCloud, so you can start a topic on your iPhone and easily continue it on your iPad and Mac.

I have notified the developers of a persistant bug, not once but twice. The first time they replied, they claimed they were looking into it. The second time, there suggested I add a text filter, which is nothing more than a bandaid to address to an obvious bug. The bug I reported is specific to blocking users. When a user is blocked, we expect tweets from that user will no longer trickle into our timeline. Not the case. For example, I despise the subhuman racist Donald J Trump, and as such, I have blocked him. Unfortunately, I’m still seeing his tweets quoted in my timeline. This does not occur with Tweetbot for iOS nor does it occur on Twitter’s website (if it doesn’t happen on twitter’s website, i expect it to not happen with a 3rd party client). Overall, Tweetbot for Mac is awesome but I can’t help but notice how these developers seem pompous and uppity in their replies for technical support. Their attitude is the reason I’m only awarding this application 3 stars. Why do these developers bite the hand that feeds them? I really hate knocking stars off such a mostly great app but it’s not me, it’s them.
Doesn’t have support for Polls and user-specific tweet notifications don’t seem to work
This is my favorite Twitter app for the Mac, better than the offical version for sure but it’s missing some small things that make this app feel too different from the real Twitter experience in my opinon.
First and foremost I have to say I have really no probelms with the user interface. It’s very organized and and a smooth running app (far better than the offical Mac app). It seems like it takes FOREVER for the app to be updated to keep up with Twitter’s new features that are added to their app though. This app is still lacking the ability to see Pinned Tweets and well as view and vote in Polls. Some of my favorite accounts that I follow run polls frequently and it’s annoying to see the question asked but not even see the Poll, it’s honestly confusing sometimes.
The main reason Tweetbot is my first choice for using Twitter on the Mac because of the options we have to get notifications with the app, even though I feel the function is lacking in some areas. I wish there was a dedicated section for adding new user specific Tweet notifications. Under Preferences > Account I wish you’d add a dedicated space to edit and or view accounts we have notifications for and add the ability to get a notication when that account Retweets a Tweet. Same things goes with muted accounts.
It’s a fairy good app, but it’s not as good as it once was (as the reviews show).
On the 18th of November, 2015, I notified one of the developers of a rather annoying bug (after I got no response from neither the Tweetbot nor the Tapbots Twitter account). The bug in question is the lack of a notification badge on the dock icon despite it being enabled in the app and in System Preferences. He responded fairly quickly and confirmed my suspicions that I wasn’t the only one experiencing the issue and assured me that it would be fixed in a future version. Fast forward 6 months and the bug is still unresolved. One of the main reasons I choose to use an app to browse Twitter is for immediate and unobtrusive notifications upon new tweets. What good is the app if that feature doesn’t even work properly?
To clarify what I mean when I say “properly”, the developer offered a way around the bug: hide the app instead of closing it and the dock badge will continue to work.
