Lacking basic features

The good: allows you to post tweets (with photos and animated gifs), read your timeline, have multiple accounts, and it’s relatively compact. Seems to be under semi-active development (for now)

The bad: Can't filter (hide) tweets based on keywords and hashtags. Mute function needs a timer (1 day/wk/month/yr) so you hush people for a short time without ignoring them forever. Although twitter allows animated gifs up to 20 meg, app is still limited to 5 meg.

Most of this is in Tweetdeck, but Tweetdeck basically needs an entire monitor dedicated to it, so that’s out for me.

Not very pleasant...

Why bother with an app when the web version is so much better? I can’t even see my profile page or make changes, it just hangs and shows me a blank screen on the profile tab. It concstantly gives me errors, won’t load tweets and pages i’m trying to view, but it is handy having it right on my mac. The ability to go fullscreen like the web browser would be nice too. I will keep hoping this will get better!

Finally fixed the CPU spikes

It took quite a while, but the latest update seems to make this app usable again. Aside from the obvious lack of useful features that other clients have implemented, there's still a couple annoying bugs, but nothing you can't avoid if you know about them.
