Tweetbot is an award-winning, full-featured* Twitter client for the Mac. It has a beautiful interface with light & dark themes, multiple-column support and much more.

* Twitter does not grant 3rd party apps access to every single feature that is available on Twitter’s website.

Notable Features:

Expandable Sidebar.
Tweetbot’s new optional expanded sidebar provides one-click access to all of your subsections like lists, direct message conversations, and saved searches.

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.

Dark Theme.
Your eyes will appreciate the new dark theme in low light situations. And the images and video in your timeline will love the extra attention.

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.

Full support for managing your Twitter lists. Use them as custom curated timelines or even as your main timeline.

iCloud Sync.
Tweetbot for Mac syncs your read position and much more with Tweetbot for iOS so your experience is seamless when switching from desktop to mobile and vice versa.

Tweet Topics.
Topics automatically chain together multiple Tweets to easily create tweetstorms or live blog events.

Full Screen.
Open Tweetbot fullscreen with columns for a command center-like Twitter experience.

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.

Profile Notes.
Ever forget why you followed someone or wanted to jot notes on a user for future reference? Create notes on a user's profile that only you can see.

Quick Paste Links.
Paste Tweet or profile web links directly into Tweetbot to view them instantly.

Constant Beach Balls

Since I last wrote my review, I had to replace my old macbook air with a new macbook pro. The beach balling is still there.

When I scroll the app, it often beach balls loading the timeline. When I move from one list to another, it often beach balls. When I see a thread, it often beach balls.

Why is this happening? This was never a problem with Tweetbot 2.

Better than most but not close to original Tweeter app

This is probably the best Tweeter app since the original one. but I find a some inconsistencies. Too many clicks to get somewhere. Trying to find something is a nightmare. Is is not intuitive. You type a person you follow and suggests other ones except that one. That is ridiculous. Also, the videos, although I like the rollover-play function, when you click to enlarge it is BLURRY for most of the video clip. It takes a long time to understand the videos have been enlarged from the timeline and keeps the same resolution. If you want to see a video in a larger/better resolution format you’re out of luck. You have to go to Safari, open Tweeter, locate that particular tweet and then play it at better resolution. I assume these are easy things to fix. I hope they do it soon.
