DM performance seems to be better now, although I admittedly don't use this app as much because Twitter has done such a terrible job in the past at fixing all the problems they've introduced to it.

The main problems with this version are:
A. The menu bar icon no longer highlights at all, even though its enabled in the settings.
B. All mentioned usernames are no longer displayed in the tweets in the Timeline, nor when replying. Instead they are relegated to "@someone and x others", making it a hassle and waste of time having to click through a reply chain just to find out who all the people in the message are.

No nearly the same functions as ios. Do these developers not use this app?

Can’t DM tweets natively. Can’t tweet media without downloading the file. Videos sometimes cannot play. Which will be nice, since videos in the ios version prevent you from keep scrolling the app. But here i could just keep both screens at the same time. There’s no handoff support, which would be awesome if it would remember my place in the timeline. Also you got so much space in the side bar, maybe you can allow people to put there accounts or conversations or hashtags people would like to keep their eyes on.

No proper full screen window, which for such a large company and for 2016 is shameful. You guys own tweetdeck, you know how to make a full screen-pro user ui.

A total mess

The macOS version of the Twitter app is an utter disaster. Since switching to it (primarily for the ability to sync with my phone, and because Tweetbot doesn’t allow you to send gifs in DMs), I’ve had the following issues:

-Memory issues: As I use the app over a day or so, it will slowly take up over a GB of memory, sapping my system’s resources. Mind you, I have no powerhouse, but this gets annoying.
-Slowdown: Especially when I’m DMing a friend (we have a rather huge DM history), the app will slowdown, going into full beach ball mode for a minute before my message shows at sent on my computer (long after it shows as sent on my phone).
-Notifications not showing up: Notifications regularly show up well after they do on my phone.
-New tweets/notifications delayed: Related to the above, it’ll take ages for new Tweets, DMs, and Notifications to show up well after they do on my phone.
-Dock/app icon issues: The Dock and in-app new Tweet notifications do not go away as they should.

So, all in all, AVOID until Twitter fixes this mess. If they ever do.
