It was good while it lasted

Tweetbot has been a fantastic client for Twitter, and I've never experienced any glitches. Its GUI is intuitive and clean, and importantly lacks the ads that Twitter's app shows. However, Twitter has been ending support for various APIs that make third party apps like Tweetbot possible and useful. As a result and through no fault of the developers of Tweetbot, Tweetbot's usefulness and features are in decline. They have had to recently end features such as user statistics because that info is no longer being pushed by Twitter to third parties. It's a shame, and while the app still functions flawlessly, the increasing stripping of features is becoming an annoyance. It's not Tweetbot's fault, but it does mean that my otherwise heartfelt recommendation for the app has to be made with the important caveat that third party twitter clients are no longer really supported by Twitter and thus Tweetbot is not as useful as it should be. My experience with the app has been excellent otherwise, but I suspect that in the future Tweetbot might not really function properly at all if Twitter keeps scrapping support for their APIs. It's at that point that I will probably stop using Twitter though.

Now, always, and forever the best

Social media apps are generally made for the purpose of hooking their users, pulling them into a forever loop of stats and notifications. Tweetbot has always been good for getting out of that loop, with an interface that deemphasizes numbers and puts the things that actually matter in the forefront. Due to meddling from Twitter, they've had to remove a few features such as notifications for likes and retweets, and reply and message notifications have gotten slower. They've removed the page showing which tweets of yours are popular.

That's sad for the devs who have to compete with the main app, but I turned off those features years ago. What's left is an experience full of what you want to use twitter for in the first place, without annoying things that you don't want. It's a social media app that you only pick up when you want it. There's no reason to use anything else.

A twitter without tweetbot is not worth using. If twitter turns off support for apps like this I will leave the service entirely.

Watch functionality useless

I bought this under the impression I’d be able to enjoy twitter on my new Apple Watch using it. It does support watch, as indicated by the existence of an app for it accompanying the main app. I found after purchasing that the app only supports twitter “activity,” which isn’t clear, but seems to be only notifications of notable account events like follows and messages being received. Not at all what I was looking for, nor is it in any way helpful.

I wrote Tapbots support, who indicated that reading twitter on Apple Watch isn’t fun. I’m not quite sure why they then advertise Apple Watch functionality. Why not remove it entirely? In any case, I petitioned for a refund of my purchase, and they directed me to iTunes support. Fair enough, except that their correspondences were entirely without empathy or attempts to understand. Classic case of Silicon Valley app developers disassociated from their clientele? Maybe I’m making a mountain of a mole hill, but had they shown any care, I might have felt inclined to forget about it and move on. I’ll remember it, and won’t purchase anything else from them, nor will I recommend them and their products to others.
