An improvement but still needs work.

Finally, quote tweets are here! It’s a great addition, but there is still a lot of room for improvement: There’s no native Interactions menu. All you can see are mentions. When trying to view who favorited a tweet, it links you to the third-party website Favstar (if you’ve attempted to use Favstar, it is of little use if your account is protected). In addition, if you are uploading images in a specific order, you’re out of luck, as the app doesn’t display them in the order intended. The app’s context menu could still use more options as well, like showing options to retweet, favorite, and quote tweet. Viewing conversations is counterintuitive, showing them in reverse order, and if there’s an option to change this, I haven’t found it. So while quote tweets are a great addition, and other features like muting can be very useful, when I have to open a totally different app to view something as simple as who favorited a tweet, they’re not enough for me to use this as my primary Twitter app. Especially when it costs over $13 with tax.

Still the best Twitter app for OS X

Tweetbot long ago become my default Twitter app, on iOS and OS X. The OS X version has languished for a while, but the v2.0.0 update finally brings it forward to the present! The interface fits in with the rest of Yosemite nicely, and the addition of tiny avatars for retweets is a nice touch. The treatment of “embedded” tweets is quite nice, as well. The freestanding new tweet window is a nice change, as it allows one to double-check what you’re about to tweet with the rest of the app.

It's good

But not 5 star good, as it was in earlier releases. Lately the horrific sounds from the iOS edition seem to have made their way into this version too. Very unpleasant. Also, there's now a "new" notification (blue dot on the icon) for every new tweet in your stream. So basically all the time. Don't see what that adds. For the rest basically all fine but these two details nag me so that it's not running constantly anymore. I now fire it up now and then and then close it again. Shame.
