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.

I HATE the CEO of Twitter

But I love this app. Granted it's not the same since the CEO of Twitter went all riot gear on 3rd party Twitter clients. But Twitter had to o this becasue they are unable to create a good app or a goood mac alterantive. I will use Tweetbot till the day the app on iOS and MAC dies.

Great but wish notifs sync

This app is great and is hands-down the best Twitter client I’ve ever used on both iOS and Mac. The streaming feature is perfect, I don’t ever have to “pull to refresh” when I’m on Wi-Fi, and new tweets show up instantaneously.

That said, I wish the notifications sync across device. I have an iPhone and a Mac, but if I get a mention on the phone and read it (or even replied to it), and I go back to my Mac a few HOURS after, the notification would still show up on the Mac client. Basically, the menu bar icon lights up as blue and says I have 1 unread mention.

This app is SO close to perfection, I wish the devs can polish this and make it the truly great app that I think it can be.

Update 6/26: Got an app update at 20th June and I was excited that Tapbots is continuing to offer updates to customers of Tweetbot 2, turns out that the update snuck in a “Tweetbot 3 is now available” modal pop-up. Disgusting. Revising my review to 1-star.

Missing a few obvious features

Tweetbot is ok, now that the official Twitter App is no longer maintained for Mac… But I really wish there was a way to see (and control) progress in video playback (I don’t know how many times people have asked for this feature, and the devs keep ignoring...), and also being able to see both of my accounts at the same time. You can have multiple windows, but only one of them has the left-bar, making the other one almost useless. Additionally, I would like to see the number of likes and retweets tweets have without having to click on each tweet. Other than that, it’s a pretty good Twitter client
